Research or IBD

If one wants to get the best valuation / modelling background and skills in analysing industries for a few years, before making a move to potentially a HF or PE style firm, which is better - equity research or IBD? From my view, research would be more detail oriented and, hence, better ... why would PE and HFs recruit mainly analysts from IBD - is it simply due to their deal execution experience or work ethic, what else? Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.

I don't think you know what research is... or banking for that matter.

Well, thanks for your polite, insightful response!
I'm not sure there's much to say to that...
