Investment Strategy roles
I am considering a career in AM, ideally Fixed Income Invesmtent.
These are FT offers, not internships.
I have an offer from a large AM firm with around $500bn AUM. It is for their Real Asset (basically Real Estate) strategy team.
From what I can tell, I won't be doing actual Investing. Mainly just quantiative macro/industry research and publishing the research in-house.
Do people from these roles ever move into Investment teams?
2nd question would be, is Real Assets/Estate to Fixed Income a challenging move?
I also have an offer to intern in Investment Risk at a firm with $1 trillion AUM, covering Equities, Fixed Income and ESG.
Would my transition at $1tn firm be easier from their Risk team to Fixed Income Invesmtent?
Any help/insight appreciated.
For context this is in Europe if it matters.
