If one wants to have a successful management consulting career (or eventually wants to become a ceo), chosing a firm is simple...go for the top three...McKinsey, bain, or Boston Consulting group. If one wants to have a successful accounting career, again, chosing a firm is simple...go for the big four...(I've never bothered to look them up).
If one wants to have a successful Asset Management career, chosing a firm is not so simple....
So, my question is this - What are the unanimously agreed upon top firms in the field of asset management (e.g. what mck/b/BCG is to management consulting)?? If I had the qualifications to work for anyone in asset management - and wanted to be very successful eventually - what would be the best fims to work for?
Thank you very much in advance for any help!
