Internal Wholesaler vs. Analyst at newly formed RIA
I am between two offers. The first is for an internal wholesale gig, working for a highly respected investment management firm; the second is for an analyst position at a newly established RIA (AUM of ~200MM), where my functions would include placing trades, building portfolios, preparing performance reports, etc.
Does anyone have experience working with a small RIA? If so, and assuming the RIA does grow to a more significant level, could I expect to learn more from working-and growing with-the RIA?
My ultimate goal is to become an FA, but I'd like to accumulate a more diverse background than I currently have.
