Hi everyone,
I'm asking this question for a friend of mine who just started working in the high yield credit research department of a top BB (top 3 in research and with a ranked analyst). He wants to know if after one year of experience he will be able to move over to a good lev fin ibd group. What do you guys think? Are the skillsets similar enough, or is it an uphill battle?

Also, if it matters, this kid has an awesome GPA from an ivy (not H/Y/P)
