From top 10 AM to Mega Hedge Fund?

I will be starting in a graduate programme at a major AM fund (top 10 EU500bln+) in London doing rotations in investment research track and PM track. I was wondering how hard it is to transfer to a reputable hedge fund within the next 2-7 years and get a PM track there. I love AM but I think I will eventually want to be in a more fast paced environment and my final ambition is to become a PM at a hedge fund, create a solid track record there, and then start my own buyside shop. Is that track possible? Is AM a good placento be for then moving to hedge funds? Also, which path is better for an eventually move to a hedge fund, should I go for an investment researck track or portfolio management track? I look forward to hearing your insights
