A transition from audit to IB

#1

Is it possible to transfer into IB work after completing an ACA? Is it beneficial to gain an ACA first and would the experiences be transferable? IB work interests me, but with recruitment still not fantastic and the entry level work very mundane with extremely long working hours, I am tempted to do an ACA first with a Big 4 firm to gain experience in the world of business.

Does anyone have any thoughts, experience or advice with regards to this?
