I'm under the impression that all major insurance companies have investment divisions in-house, so they can invest their large amounts of capital. My question is, how good would a job in the investment division of an insurance company be for someone straight out of college, if their long-term goal was to be a portfolio manager at a mutual fund, private wealth management firm, hedge fund, or similar buy-side companies? Are insurance companies good places to get your feet wet for investment management? I would definitely be willing to get the CFA and an MBA, so my question is just more about the value of these jobs in terms of work experience.
