FT PB vs PE IR ?

Hello monkeys!

I am facing a dilemma as I just received two FT offers:

  • FT offer in a top PB (JP/GS/MS)

  • FT offer as an IR in a top PE fund

I am clearly hesitating between both. Apart from comp, what would be the best career in the long-term ? 
 

Thank you for the help 

FT?

PE IR

Not an expert, but i guess that PB is really structure dependent

Those who voted for IR, what would be your main arguments as the comp from PB seems to have no ceiling in some BBs
