    Hi guys,

    What would your exit options be after working for a traditional asset manager (like Fidelity and Blackrock)? Would you be considered a strong candidate by hedge funds (or would they prefer investment bankers)?

    Cheers,

    In my view, candidates coming from the sell side are seen as more competitive. The leaning cruve is steeper in an investment bank than with a fund manager.
    Greenwich Partners, a company that recruits a lot for hedge funds in the city, is particularly keen on getting third year analysts from IBs as "juniors" for HF.

    My line manager at RBS Spring Week moved from buy side to sell side. If i recall correctly he said its better to start sell side.
