Hi, I have a career question that I hope some people here can help me with. I am a CFA Charterholder, and like most people, I would prefer to work in the buy-side in the future.

I have received a job offer for a fixed income analyst role, which focuses on investment grade issuers at an international bank within their Treasury department (investing in bonds that meet HQLA requirement). My background has always been corporate credit analyst (but more toward corporate banking)

I am just wondering what are your views about this transition. The new role itself is still dominated by credit analysis but in the fixed income space which I feel like it may be a step closer to buy-side (I may be wrong). And I hope I can eventually get some portfolio management experience once I started to work closely with the portfolio managers.
