So this is my first post on wso, but I've read around good deal.... I've come a solid ways career wise from attending a non-target > to first job was outside the industry > then to Ops at a BB > currently FIG analyst at a big 3 CRA and CFA level II candidate.

Just thinking long-term - Is there any avenue to make the jump from big 3 CRA to PE ( ex. debt restructuring analyst)? I realize this is an unlikely direct move, so I'm more wondering what attainable jobs would be the right move between to eventually make jump to PE?

For anyone who cares:

Due to the emerging trend of inflows to low cost passive index funds and outflows in actively managed mutual funds - are the future careers of large institutional fund research analysts and portfolio managers in jeopardy or at least expected to shrink over the long-term?

Hi Bigdog22, whoops, looks like nobody chimed in here.... maybe one of these discussions below is relevant:

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.
