Actuary to Equity Research?
I graduated from college 3 years ago. I've been working as an actuarial consultant in the healthcare industry since then. I have recently started considering switching to(healthcare sector). I am hoping to get some input from you guys about life in Equity Research.
I have 2 more actuary exams left, which should take me 12 - 18 months. I am 25 right now and by the time I finish the exams, my compensation will be around 110K-125K. I work 40-55 hours currently. The job is VERY flexible - I can work from home when I feel like it, take a day off without asking etc.
I would appreciate if you guys can give me an idea of hours and compensation for a first-year analyst, third-year analyst and a senior analyst.
Also, I sent my resume to many senior analysts and received extremely positive responses about my experience in healthcare. So it doesn't look like I'll have trouble securing interviews.
