Career in finance industry

So you want to work in finance?

Finance is a pretty wide industry with a range of possible careers. You will need to narrow done much further.

You could choose from the following –

Investments – the asset and wealth management sectors are called the ‘buy side’, within asset management, the stock and bond markets have a long history while the alternatives sectors are relatively recent

Investment banking – the ‘sell side’ can include equities research or transaction advisory

Retail or corporate banking – banks and non-banking financial institutions lend to households or corporates


You should plan your education in line with the line you choose. Shreekant Daga of CAIA has some advice.
