Changing from Energy Trading to IM/ResearchST
I'm in my early thirties and have been an energy trader for almost five years now. Purely spec trading. I also trade interest rate futures in my own account, among other commodities. Love macroeconomics and fundamental analysis.
I've always had an interest to work at a mutual fund/pension fund doing research, perhaps focus on asset mix strategy, and maybe someday being a fund manager. Preferably fixed income. I live in Canada.
I have two undergrads. Comp Sci and Economics. My last degree gpa is 3.7 and my work experience is good. Five years finance consulting. Five years energy trading/research (spec trading, not hedging). It's time to pursue a MFIN, MBA and/or CFA and new career.
My question is:
Suggestions for a next step. MBA or MFIN? I'll do the CFA regardless if i make this move. MBA appears to open doors while a MFIN would probably give me a stronger finance background.
Rotman and Queens both have MFIN programs. Otherwise I'm considering Ivey or Rotman MBA programs.
Any advice is appreciated.
