1 year: Financial DD for big4
3 years: FP&A industry
other: good academics, decent uni, ACA qualified
Been working in industry for 3 years, an exciting place, growing at breakneck speed, great exposure to senior management, direct responsibility etc.
Although happy, I'm getting concerned about the long term prospects, limiting financial reward and lack of brand image. I've also felt that I've strayed from my primary interests in finance.
I would really like to move more towards banking, the old school kind of investment banking and less of the casino side, VC or PE (think debt restructuring, financing, cap markets, IPOs, etc), a mix of research and client exposure would be ideal
So my question is
1. What kind or role should I be targeting?
2. What's the best avenue / research firm to use?
3. How do you rate my chances?
Thanks in advance
