L/S Tiger Cub in Asia to London L/S
Hi Guys - need some advice. I've been working for a Tiger Cubin Asia for the past 3 years. Have previously worked in IB. I am currently pursing MFIN at LBS (not MBA). I could have made it to top m7 schools for an MBA with my profile, but given where I am at in my career, I didn't want to take a 2 year break from work (hence MFIN). From what I understand London HF ecosystem is relatively smaller when compared to US (eg: Lots of Tiger cubs in US, very few in London). Also, most people from LBS, be it MBA or MFIN, rarely crack attractive roles at single CIO L/S shops (some crack MM roles). The ones who crack the roles from business schools are currently making less than what I was making pre-masters. Do HF's in London generally pay less? Maybe MFIN was a wrong choice, but I want to now make the best of it. How do you guys suggest I go about in terms of recruiting? Should I try for apply for full time roles at good HF's (mfin has flexibility for both options). I mean a full time role is the obviously ideal but I am not sure how difficult they would be to crack hence thinking of approaching people for internship. I am well trained and can pick up any geography/ sector, once I get a chance. Which would be the top funds I should apply for? I am obviously gonna talk to my ex-PM who will be able to help with a few intros but I was also thinking of making a stock pitch and reaching out to multiple people. Headhunters in London are barely responsive to candidates in b school. Please advice.
