Hedge fund analyst out of undergrad

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I was wondering if you could become a hedge fund analyst with just an undergraduate degree from a top university in the UK (especially LSE). If the answer is yes: Which course is best for such a career? Is there any one who knows someone who joined the hedge fund industry after just doing his BSc? I would like to hear those stories. Thank you.

    Cool. Which university did he attend and what did he study?

    Ehhh this q would probs be better on the banking forums. But a buy side role out of ug is incredibly difficult to achieve - albeit possible. Your safest bet is to do a stint at a bb ib firm first and then get recruited.

    It's been done before (goes for private equity too), and having LSE on your cv helps a bit. If you're really determined to land a hf role, I suggest checking which funds even consider recent graduates, and giving them a call.

    My 2 cents.
