Inter-dealer Broking or Wealth Management Career?

Rank: Chimp | banana points 5


I recently graduated uni and am at junior level. I was recently offered a position at a large IDB in London and was subsequently offered a position at one of the UK's largest wealth management firms - also in London.

I am looking for any advice or opinion on which path to take for anyone with relevant experience in either industries.

I can weigh up the general pros and cons but could anyone shed some more light in terms of expected progression paths, salary expectations, and exit opps.

Its not a bad position to be in but just stuck between a rock and hard place as I am still early in my career and as to what the best path would be for myself (like could you move into IBs/hedge funds/PE from either?)

Appreciate any infield opinions!

Hey fddsf, what a lonely thread. I'm here since nobody responded maybe one of these discussions will help:

No promises, but maybe one of our professional members will share their wisdom: @Charles-Mengue12 @aprilwieser @Carry The Interest

You're welcome.
