ER vs IB to get into HF/ AM

I was wondering if the investment banking or equity research path would be better if I wanted to end up in public investing (either at a hedge fund or large asset manager)? It seems like equity research would be more applicable, but I know investment banking places a lot into the public side too. Which would be a better path to pursue if I wanted to end up in public investing? Thx
