From trading market making in investment bank to HF after a MBA in St.Gallen

Subscribe

Hi guy,

I am thinking to take a MBA in St. Gallen to switch from Investment Banking - Trading (Structured Products market making) to HF because I do not see opportunities in Trading as many investment banks are closing desks and downsizing ops.

Do you think it is possible to break into HFs if I attend a MBA program in St.Gallen? (I have the CFA also)

PS: I am not working in Switz. and I do not speak German. I choose Switz because salaries are high, quality of life great and Brexit is looming
