Exits from Market Risk at VP level?
Asking for an immigrant friend who finally got permanent residency and is now more comfortableafter staying in his position for 6+ years since he no longer needs employer sponsorship to stay in the country. Honestly, hearing this made me sympathetic to the plight of H-1Bs and thankful for my own citizenship, so I really want to help him out.
He is an early 30s VP inat a top Bank ( /MS/ ) with an Ivy-league masters degree in a STEM subject and wants to eventually move to a non-quant front-office role, possibly on the (though this may take more than one jump). He has expressed some interest in trading/investment research. Is this possible at this stage in his career? If so, what path should he target?
I’m just a small-brain sector fundamental analyst so idk what you geniuses on the markets/trading/macro side do. Help & thoughts appreciated.
