I'm in a bit of a unique situation. I have a graduate contract with a, initially set to work in equities, but since I signed, the position I was supposed to go into is no longer available (at this point you can probably guess what bank this is...). Now, my contract is still valid, i.e., I'm still coming on next year as a graduate, but HR is trying to relocate me within the bank. I've been asked which areas interest me the most and I'm pretty confused about it all. I don't have a financial background - my degree is in mathematics and economics, but my economics background has been mostly mathematical game theory focussed. I would like to work in a hedge fund or private equity one day, and do research (maybe?). I tend to gravitate towards because I'm good at maths and I think I'd be good at modelling, but I also want a career path with large potential returns. I'm pretty social and not opposed to talking to people, so M&A seems a good fit for me as well. I'm just looking for some help to shed some light on which positions I should try to push for since I've sort of got free reign here (I'd still have to interview but it would be to see more of a cultural fit into the team), and don't want to waste such an opportunity. Thanks in advance!
