I've been offered a position as a quantitative analyst (risk management) but I'm ideally looking for a role within the IB. The role is actually within a commercial banking division.

What are the chances of moving into a front office (trading) at an investment bank or after 3 years transferring from commercial market risk into risk management within investment banking and then perhaps working my way up from there?
