Non-Target MBA No-Experience Route into AM
Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Title about sums it up: I went to a non-target undergrad, immediately moved into non-target MBA (coronavirus was my motivator), now interested in breaking into buy-side AM in Charlotte, NC. I recognize it won't be a straight, traditional path, but I've heard it here before that a good route would be sell-side equity researcher --> buy-side AM analyst, and go from there. The over-education may help or hurt me, I don't know, but it took me a while to find my niche (read, working with numbers and making F-you money).
Any insight would be appreciated on how I can navigate into the AM buy-side sphere. I'm interested in Long-only AM, but as far as Equities or Fixed Income, alternatives, etc. go I have the freedom and ability now to really master one if that would be beneficial. Please let me know your advice.
