Which is better for transitioning to Corporate Development, Corporate Strategy, or FP&A?

I wanted to get opinions on making a transition at Big4. My ultimate goal would be Corporate Development or Corporate Strategy, but would also be happy working in FP&A. I'm currently in forensics and want to transition to our TAS group - either Valuations or FDD. I think I'd be more interested in Valuations since a lot of forensic accountants specialize in business valuation. Though financial due diligence interests me also by nature of M&A (I do post-M&A disputes in forensics in addition to investigations and forensic accounting)

Overall, I don't want to pigeon hold myself in forensics since I don't see myself staying until Partner/MD and think my interests better align with Corporate Finance in the long run. Thoughts or advice?
