Economic Consulting to Equity Research
I am an economic consultant at a big 4 accountancy firm in London and have been for nearly 2 years. I have a Masters in Economics and have passed the CFA level 1 exam and taken the level 2 exam (not yet found out the result). My current role primarily involves valuing companies and assets for firms involved in commercial disputes (mostly through DCF valuation).
My goal is to move into Equity Research within an investment bank.
I understand that this transition will be difficult to make in the current climate, and as such I am looking for any advice on actions I can be taking at this point in time to improve my chances of breaking into this space in the future.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
