I currently work at an AM that isn't a very recognizable name in the space, but has a very strong name for elite IB (, , etc.). I'm interested in learning some of the exit opps for AM besides other AM shops and hedge funds.
My minor worry here is that I'm not in an entirely investing role (analytics/product development), and while I'm happy with both the culture, location, and team, my impression of the AM space is mobility is far more restricted than IB, consulting, or other fields. I'm also not really developing here - the job doesn't require complex modeling or other technical skills besides someand VBA.
There have been threads on this before, but they seem to have a focus on hopping between AM shops as opposed to changing roles. I just want to know if I'm pigeonholing myself and if mobility from AM to other areas of finance is common.
