Make sure you research the cost of living before moving there. Between CA taxes and ridiculous rents, it's hard to make a budget work in that area.

PIMCO is out there, which is more or less the biggest bond manager in the world. Very competitive to get a job there, but lifestyle is probably solid.

Any reason as to why not LA? Many many more opportunities in finance there.
