Mulling over two potential offers and don't really know which would be better from a career perspective.

Offer A: Second year analyst on a BB Analyst Training Program. I have been told that I will most likely be placed in FIG as I have previous experience in this area.

Offer B: Analyst in a small cap (c. $3bn AUM) investment fund focused exclusively on the insurance sector.

I feel that FIG IBD would most likely mean my exit opportunities would be Offer B type funds anyway, however I think the BB brand name could provide more flexibility down the road.
