M&A to AM is on a distinguished road
Default Career Advice (M&A to AM)

Currently i am in the M&A team (buy-side), looking to transition into the asset management (AM) industry for career aspiration reason.

I am currently holding a perm. role and was offered a contract role with one of the larger AM firm (AUM >100b) . While there is some upside to my salary (+20%), it’s a 6M-12M contract role and we do not know if there’s any renewal/conversion.

If I were to move, I would be starting 'new’ since I had M&A instead of AM experience.

In addition, many have said that AM is a sunset industry because of AI/Robot trading, increase no. of ETFs, etc.

Basic profile:
Early 30s, passed CFA level 3 (few months short of 48 months investment experience), previously graduated with Economics major from a local uni.

If you were in my shoe, would you move for career reason or stay for stability reason?
