Quick background - first year analyst in a coverage group at a top MM IB firm. I have had a great experience but starting to think about the next step, especially as recruiting season is already ramping up. My question - what career paths are heavily geared toward current events, international affairs, and the market? I love the news and seeing how macro events affect the market. At the same time, I love diving into businesses and seeing what drives them.
Is the most sensible career path a hedge fund? PE is very interesting, but I'm leaning towards stepping away from the transaction side of the business.
I'm sorry this is a broad question, but kind of at crossroads here as I think about PE, HF, and other career paths. I've been searching the site for a thread on this and couldn't find anything off first glance (please point me in the direction of a thread if this is covered in detail). Any insight would be incredibly helpful!
