Hey all just wanted to get some advice from people about working in IBD in Asia/LatAm/Europe.
I've talked to some people who believe that globalization and the rise of emerging markets will make an international perspective more important than ever over the next few years and that people who start their IB stint abroad in a place like Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo, Latin America, or London will be be better off than their counterparts who started off in an American city like NYC.
The other side of the coin is that there are unparalleled networking opportunities in cities like NYC/SF/Chicago, and when someone is abroad, they're completely out of the loop.
What do you all think? Would an opening stint in IBD in Asia/LatAm/Europe right out of college help or hurt your career? Is there value in working abroad?
