Trading - Shifting from SG/HK to US/UK

Hi everyone,

I wanted to know how easy/difficult is to shift from Trading at BB in HK/Singapore to Trading at BB in the US (preferred) or UK? After how many years could I ask for an internal transfer? Which banks would be the best to target (those who would be willing to sponsor your visa and transfer you)?

If the internal transfer doesn't work out, I was planning on doing a MS in Financial Engineering at NYU or Columbia, and then make a shift to the US. I already have a MBA from a tier 1 college in India). Have people done this shift before? If there are any, then could you connect me with them if possible?
