Investments or Research
My friend got 2 offers, both in Wealth Management.
One offer is to work in Investments with a Financial Advisor (Portfolio Management Division)
The other offer is to work in Equity Research (sell-side) of the Wealth Manager
She wants to eventually become a Lead Portfolio Manager of an equities fund...and she has been asking me as to which experience would better prepare her for a PM job in the future.
I would think Research being that most PM's come from a Research background.
If you could pick between Wealth Management Investments or Research, which would you pick?
