Late stage analyst 1 at a mid-market heavy TMT focused M&A boutique in London. Keen to increase exit opps and realise it may be worth trying to lateral to a BB / name brand. Any opinions / advice on achievability? If low, what’s the best move here.

tbh just looking to change companies - but as the exit opps are the primary objective a new role isn’t out of consideration - why do you ask?

Absolutely possible to do. Idk about London but US IB is in hiring mode as people are constantly leaving. Tons of empty seats. Easiest time to break into IB now tbh. With existing experience u can def get interviews at some BBs and EBs.

Any particular suggestions / places to research how to achieve? Is this a network with recruiters sort of situation or as simple as just applying on websites

This can happen in London too - it's worth applying, although more competitive because it's a smaller talent pool

Moving from somewhere like Arma to a TMT role in a BB is pretty straightforward though you might need another year or two experience before lateral-ing. Just talk to recruiters (Dartmouth, Arkesdan, Omerta, etc) and they’ll give you a good sense of options. They love to place IB candidates.

appreciate the insight - am at an Arma equiv

I would def lateral to different IB, HSBC Barclays and other European banks should all be hiring. Would definitely go that route

Appreciate the advice
