Florida/Latin America Investment Banking
Hello, lads, really need some help with this one.
I was previously on the law school path. Found out about investment banking about a year ago, started researching (getting better at, even learning modelling) in greater detail a few months ago. Now, I don't think I have much of a chance at New York because I'm at a non-target with an irrelevant degree. But do I have a chance at anything in Florida or Latin America? I think the biggest player in , but South Florida is even better because I'd save on rent. I've lived in Latin America and speak Spanish; my mum was born there and has some local connections, although none in the industry.
I'm also open to cities like Chicago or anywhere where the comp isn't too off. My ultimate goal is to work in Western Europe; I have two European passports (EU + UK), so visas aren't a worry.
University of Florida, second semester junior
Native Spanish, Italian and (British) English speaker; good French
Political science (can/will add economics major if helpful)
No finance experience, aside from working at a pension manager
If I do have a chance, how's the comp in, say, Mexico City? Is the experience 'discounted' when you try to move back to the US/Europe? Would learning Portuguese help?
