3yrs buy-side experience - how to get to a LDN based HF
Hi folks - I'm looking for an effective path to get into an L/S.
As a background:
living in Europe
non-target MSc in Finance
worked 1.5yrs as an analyst on a growth long-only fund
worked 1.5yrs as an analyst on a small L/S growth HF (current)
I'm considering moving to LDN and wondering what I should/could aim for.
1) First of all, is thesituation for EU citizens a real hassle or I'll get away with it?
2) Should I aim for a senior analyst position or is it too much given my experience?
3) How would you filter the research? Trying to get to a sizeable HF (>$1bn AUM) or joining alternative, etc.?
4) Where would you look to find opps? LinkedIn & networking, searching HFs on Bloomberg, else?
