Moving to Europe IB / PE / HF
Hi all - keen to get thoughts on the below from the European perspective.
I'm a 1st year associate in BB IB trying to move from APAC to Europe, and aiming to exit into large cap PE or L/S HF.
I initially focussed on applying for BBs and EBs in Europe at the back end of last year, but had no luck. Haven't interviewed this year yet despite applying for 50+ roles (IB, PE, HF).
Common feedback is that the London talent pool is very deep, more applicants in market given layoffs, and L/S roles always seem to want either equity research backgrounds or prior investing experience.
Now that the market has continued to deteriorate, I'm contemplating other options:
1) Exiting to PE in APAC (probably not large cap) and then try to lateral to PE or L/S in Europe
2) Broadening my scope to include infra PE and special sits in Europe
3) Quitting my job and taking 3 months off before moving to London (without a job) for interviews and networking
4) Securing a MM IB role in Europe, and then applying for BB, EB, MF PE, and L/S HF roles from there
