A&D to Healthcare with "ease" is very unlikely, although possible. A more likely change would be to any other industrial sector or overlapping either in terms of product (up and down the supply chain) or business model. So sector does matter, but I wouldn't say you will be completely pigeonholed, especially initially (first 2-4 years).

Tech, Healthcare and Consumers are the popular and "hot" sectors. If you start in healthcare likely to stay in healthcare (insurance could shift to financials, but biotech etc... is unique and unlikely to translate as easily to any other sectors), Consumers could reasonably shift to TMT/industrials and tech would likely stay in tech, (M&T of TMT likely could shift into industrials/consumers). In general, first 2-4 years most switches are possible as you are still learning the fundamentals, once you hit VP and up unlikely to shift all that significantly (lots of sub-vertical switches to start coverage, but unlikely to see big industry swaps).

Hey More Leverage! Thanks for the response. What sector would you recommend for an individual that knows they want to do equity research but isn't sure what sector they want to go in? In your opinion, is there a sector that has mass appeal? Thanks again and have a good day
