Lateral from Lower-BB to Elite Boutique
Thanks for taking the time to read.
I know several threads have been devoted to analysts making the move from MM toor no-name boutiques to BB, but I'm wondering what everyone's thoughts are on lateraling during your first year from a coverage group at a lower-BB ( / / ) to an M&A group at an elite boutqiue (LAZ/EVR/GHL).
How would making this kind of move affect buy-side recruiting? Clearly the latter shops generally have more luck in placement in PE, but would this hold true for an analyst lateral? How would the head hunters perceive such a move, assuming that you already have a good amount of deal experience?
I appreciate any insight that anyone is willing to share. Feel free to PM me if that's more appropriate.
