    I know this is probably way out there and I probably won't get much information but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the emerging markets such as longevity bonds, swaps etc. or property derivatives.

    Do you think that will be a good market in the future? I am contemplating on starting a career as an analyst at a top investment bank taking prop positions in longevity derivatives but I also have an option to change to the standard market making commodities desk.

    Preferably I want to ride the wave, start in a new market and ride a bubble like the mbs one.

    I know most of the people here are independent/prop shop guys but any input would help.
