It's not a no-brainer. One's a capital markets position and the other one is pure IBD. And lateralling at the associate level from a capital markets position to an industry group isn't that straightforward. While I agree that FIG is boring as shit, you'd be exposed to M&A, ECM and DCM deals, with the possibility of exit opps to PE firms easier from an IBD position than a DCM one.

Like I said. It's a no brainer.

Thank you guys. I am not quite sure yet if I want to take the PE route, but it is good to have that option open. I would like to know little more about the culture, hours and promotions etc. at both places.

  • I really liked the people at both places
  • Nomura's FIG is just starting to grow and take shape. In the MD's word - it will be a great opportunity for me to grow.
