Boutique IB can mean a number of diff places. If it’s a reputable boutique within the sector it covers yes it can lead to potential exit opps within that sector. On the flip side there’s a ton of boutiques out there with lackluster deal flow that tbh you’re better off doing strategy consulting. I know a few guys who are legit stuck at boutiques and the only exit opps they found were lateraling to better banks. In that case strategy consulting could offer more optionality for sure. I think equating boutique IB to t2 is very inaccurate.

Probably similar tbh. T2 opps aren't as great as some people think
