I’m still in university and considering my career options in finance. I’m considering between prop trading and trading at BB. From what I know prop trading would give me a higher comp and is more technically demanding but a BB would give me a better forward. My questions are the following:
- What are the concrete comp differences long-term?
- Which offers slightly more stability in the short run?
- What kinds of exit opportunities/career transitions do each offer?
Just trying to get a better sense of the two paths.
