Definitely interested to hear some thoughts from people at top AM firms or those who have done wholesaling before : at, , The Capital Group, , how common is it that you see the internals opt to go into (or are somewhat easily able to -- with CFA perhaps or an MBA/MSF) roles like product development, , etc? I know many want to go off and become externals but are certain firms more fond of allowing their internals to move off into these roles?
I've seen a lot of postings for interesting roles in product development/marketing and client portfolio management roles and many of them list years of experience in investment sales/investment management (and, often times, knowledge of distribution channels) and I'm assuming that the internals end up funneling into these roles well for their combination of sales/marketing experience and knowledge of all the different funds available?
