As stated above, need advice. Current non-target, rising junior. Signed an SA offer with one of the following (EVR/LAZ/MOE/PJT) for 2020. Got reached out to within the past week from a MM HF (D. E. Shaw/P72) from HR telling me to apply to their discretionary investing teams and stating that they would love to put me in contact with a senior person at the firm. They had reached out about a month ago and I had told them about the EB offer but yet they still ended up reaching back out (with what seemed like a decently personalized email?).
Personally, I want to develop a long-term career as an investor and am especially interested in both traditional l/s & distressed debt. With that said, I feel it would be risky given my background if I were to continue to recruit as I don't want to screw up the EB offer I already have in hand and wouldn't have an elite university name to really fall back on for other opportunities. The HF also has an approximate 50% return offer from what I've heard so I assume it would be a very cutthroat experience.
Lastly, I feel that MM HF's approach investing very differently compared to a tiger cub or other elite single-manager and therefore may potentially yield wildly different experiences/skill-sets. At the end of the day, would it make sense to continue recruiting with said HF or would the difference in career trajectory be very minimal between both choices (and therefore I should stick with the EB offer and recruit later on for other HFs)? Thanks in advance for any advice.
