Exit Opps - GIC NY

Prospect in 

As per the title, was wondering about exit opportunities for undergrads at GIC (NY) - public equities / global macro, particularly into corporate facing roles such as corp strat?

Why would you move into corp strat from an investing role? GIC investing is the exit opp.

Are you the guy posting the same question about BNP and UBS exit opps / prestige? You will not enjoy finance (and likely wont succeed) if all you care is about prestige and exit opportunities.

I guess its more along the lines of flexibility in case things go south? I mean investing is fun and all, and I'd definitely see myself doing it for the next few years, but I am just a bit concerned about what if I do not like it / want to enter corporate after a few years covering said companies from a public markets standpoint. At the very least, with IB you'd have that sense of available exits in case things go south, but would it be fair to say that applies to equities / macro at firms like GIC?

I know one person who went from an investing role to corp strat during a re-org. She absolutely hates it and would give her right arm to be back in investing. The N is not statistically significant, but take the anecdote as an indicator.

what do you mean by a re-org? Also was the person you knew from a sovereign wealth fund or from an Asset Management firm in general? I mean theres plenty of material out there for traditional AMs / HFs, but not really so much for the public eq / global macro segments of a SWF :/
