1.)Can anyone shed some light on these two career paths? What are some pros/cons and similarities / differences for each? I looked at Goldman, UBS, and Morgan Stanley's website but couldnt really find anything in-depth.
2.)My dream job would be to manage a large pool of money, like a hedge fund, but within a firm. So for example, instead of joining some isolated hedge fund competing against thousands of other firms, i'd like to join an established, secure, and very talented fund at a large financial firm like GS, UBS, ect.
3.)What would the title of such a job be? I've heard of like GS's alpha fund blow up earlier this year, but was that a hedge fund?
4.)Also, from what i've read, i have discovered a ton of these funds are big on quants and quantitative anaylsis. IF i were to go into a "fund-managing-type" field, would i even get the job without a degree in quant. analysis? Are there funds in these financial firms that aren't quant-focused?
I know there's a lot of questions and I did do a lot of research before asking them, but i'd like to hear what some of the CC'ers have to say. Thanks
