Quant research at a large sell side bank - is MFE enough for progression?

If you were to get a job as a quant researcher at one of the big sell side banks, can you progress into more senior roles with only a master's? Or do you need a PhD?

I’ve seen many with only a master’s degree. As Michsund says, performance.
