We can't tell whats best for you. That question is mostly on you. What do you want to do? What are your goals? Go out and explore, interview, and think about what you'd want to do. Once you figure it out seek advice on how to make it happen.

Zero prestige, probably poor pay, and you’re still an accountant

Fund accounting can be great but you should better plan for a career in that space. Since fund is highly specialized it can be a less desirable skill set elsewhere. However, should that be your passion, then that would be a great move!
