    Currently an analyst in an industry credit risk team at a BB.

    Looking to move to a M&A advisory position, happy to work at a boutique / MM, anything to get my foot in the door.

    Any advice how best to approach this? Cold call HR? Cold call analysts? MDs?
    Mfin?

    Thanks.

    WSO has a lot of articles about this, the general trend seems to be proving yourself in your current role and networking with FO staff/members of boutiques when given the opportunity to develop connections. I'd say the onus is definitely on you and not HR to make this happen!

    Best of luck

    Could always grab a cup of coffee with some Analysts/Associates in IBD? If you're at a BB already, it shouldn't be to hard to reach out to people in the position that you're looking to head into - they could possibly refer you to the decision makers.

    I think it's best to explore non-academic options first before committing any earned wages (or debt) to an MFin. If you feel like you've exhausted all options (i.e. networking with IBD guys at your bank, reaching out to people on Linkedin that have made a similar transition, cold-calling bankers at other banks etc) then sure, applying to top MFin programmes at the likes of LBS, HEC, Oxbridge, Warwick, Imperial etc could be a way forward.

    Other than that, I'd tap into any IB headhunters you know to enquire about your options.
