PIMCO vs MAN Group
I have an offer from(product analyst) and (graduate analyst) and I am super confused about which one to choose. A few points pertaining to each role -
- PIMCO is a good brand name to have on CV, plus they are moving heavily into quant based/ hedge fund type of investing which means I will get to work on these strategies ( My education and work ex favour quant based investment roles)
My concern with PIMCO is that the role of product analyst may not let me transition into a PM position. I don't want to be pigeonholed so early in my career.
- MAN group is also a good brand name (gold standard in terms of hedge fund). They are a quant player but they also have a fundamental and real estate arm. I don't want to spend time doing fundamental analysis but I will have to do that for 6-months as a graduate analyst.
Concern with MAN group is that career progression is not very certain here, and their non-quant strategies are not that strong.
Please help me in choosing which is a better company and role.
