Would moving from audit to a financial analyst role hinder chances of ever making it to IB? FA role includes FP&A type work and working with financial models. I am also looking at transaction...

works at

services positions for the deal experience. I know TS might be better but how would the exit ops for the FA role be? Would IB still be a possibility?

TS is objectively better than FP&A if you’re trying to get into banking

Commenting because I’d also like to know.. need to get out of audit as soon as I am done with my PQ so I can finally do something I enjoy.

Probably would need an MBA after the FA role to get into IB

Yep agreed was planning to get MBA at some point. I guess the FA role would give me more time to study for GMAT than TS. Wonder which looks better for MBA application though?

TS would look better in my opinion, and i know people who have gone from TS right to IB. But you’re also right that FPA would give you more time to study for IB.

I know ts is better... that’s why I said it. Question was does the FA hinder/rule out my chances at IB
