I am currently based offshore but am looking to move to London asap (bored of where I live).
Asset management/investment banking is of great interest to me but I have had limited experience in this area (only worked corporate services with Deutsche Bank and investment administration with RBC).
I have been been offered an operations role with a boutique hedge fund in the City but am worried my career is heading towards back office, which will limit future prospects.
I only graduated 2 years ago (1 of which spent travelling) so this is more of a location change than career decision.
If I take the hedge fund position, will it be possible to move into a front office role at some point (desk assistant etx)?
What do people recommend I do?
Does anyone use their degree?
