Math and economics major, taking coursework in stats and computer science. Currently intern at a BB S&T division. Didn't get to be on the trade floor this last summer, but I liked what I learned over the experience and took the return offer. Looking forward to full time, I have 3 options:
1. Stay on the S&T floor
2. Move to the IBD side, stay there for the exits (likely to investment management or a hedge fund)
3. Move to a Multimanager Hedge Fund (AQR p72 Citadel) <-- currently getting recruited for firms like these through accelerators and relationships with recruiters.
Now I love Math and programming, and I love markets even more, but I don't know if the 3rd option is a safe bet considering the narrowness of the career path moving forward. Anyone with experience at a multimanager or a quant fund that advocates for this option?
