The real high finance is prop trading lmao.
I got nothing to say to this one, it's indeed true :').

If you carrry on with this elitist attitude, i can assure you - you will never make it far wherever you go.
This elitist attitude is rampant in high finance - especially they think they’re hot **** (like the guy above his pay = everyone’s perceived value of him?). How did you overcome it

Both do not matter to me. I will just ask if you have done any personal investing. If yes, run though your decision with me.

Buyside research
Protege deploys 5? 25? K in startups. gzip you can co-manage 10k. Don't think the other clubs deploy significant capital

Bro we here at Citadel/JS/DRW/Jump earn 300-400k USD p.a. for base, at least LOL.
It is significantly more possible to get into IB than top tier quant

Would you rather deal with elitist? Or a hobo (VC) pretending they're elite (high finance)?

Bro... 100x...

IB in Singapore takes in total maybe around 30-40 ppl every year

Top tier quant (that pays like Citadel) probably less than 5 per year...

There's a reason they are paid like MDs as a junior...

Hmm 5k, 25k. What types of opportunities do they look at, and how much work is actually done?

Didn't know of people in such clubs back in my time, so can't say much of the experience. But I would think the magntiude of capital (thus scope of investments and the work entail) matter.

Might potentially build the wrong habits from it. I think you can join those if you want to try it for fun. Getting good grades and build up knowledge/interview skills to secure that first related internship is more helpful.

(prev poster) I think it's possible to get into IB if you begin grinding in uni year 1. Not that it's not brutally difficult, and if you're not in the target clubs kinda SOL, but strictly speaking this is a possible situation.

I don't think anyone can begin thinking "quant is fun" in uni year 1 and make it into top quant shops.
