What exactly makes it immensely difficult to break into AM on the junior level?
I haven't applied to AM in undergrad but trying my luck through a master's degree (in London). I'm not acquainted with how the process works, but I can imagine it's more tedious than IB recruiting (like evaluating personal investment skills through profound tasks etc). So then my question is, is the process itself extremely difficult to master or are applicants largely uninterested?
It's really hard to poke at the skills of hoards of dedicated students, so I'm excluding this possibility. Would really appreciate any help here!
