Leaving a single manager to start a book at a platform

Has anyone made the switch from being an analyst at a single manager to being a PM on any of the platforms?

As background, I've been at a single manager for 6 years and have covered my sector for a total of 8 years. I'm making ok but not great money for someone my level (500-750K) but have always had ambitions of becoming a PM (generally not possible at single managers)

I've now been offered the chance to run a small book at one of the platforms, with the usual parameters (market neutral etc etc) and trying to decide whether it's worth leaving a relatively secure and stable seat to pursue the platform opportunity.

Anyone have any thoughts?
