faceslappingcompilation, what's your opinion? Comment below:

prestige has no meaning / value in  prop trading...the only thing that matters to anybody is your P&L

if you want "prestige" ,..then go into advisory investment banking

just google're welcome
yungtrader, what's your opinion? Comment below:

agree with the other comments regarding prestige not being a thing in the prop world as you don't go in for any exit opportunities

that said, some great shops include Jane Street, Citadel Securities, Optiver, SIG, Five Rings (small), Hudson River Trading (only quants, very few "traders"), Jump, IMC, DRW - this is not an exhaustive list

Do I have any exit opportunities as a prop trader? I would really like to know whether it's a good career path as I am a student considering banking/trading/technology paths and will intern in one of the mentioned shops.

yungtrader, what's your opinion? Comment below:

you don't go into prop trading for the exit opportunities, but rather to make a lot of money in a relatively short timeframe

if you dm me the name of the firm I can probably provide more specific info though
