Investment Consulting with CFA - what are the exit opportunities?
One possible career path I am exploring is to work as an Investment Consultant at one of the insitutional advisors/brokers (Aon,, Mercer) and qualification. Much of the work will be advising pension funds on , governance, investment manager they should use. There might be some direct delegated investment decisions which I will get involved in through the area of work. So I could be doing research into specific assets and Asset Manager type activities. But I think most of the research work will be focussed on the investment manager in the market - finding the right ones for the client to invest their money in.
What are likely exit opportunities from this career + CFA qualification? I'm particularly interested, Equities Research and Investment Banking.
