How to transition from Fund accounting(B.O) to H.F. (F.O)

I am currently based out of India. will be joining SSC GlobeOP (Mumbai) FA team -plz suggest career path in order to shift to H.F (F.O).

P.S - I have made a plan which involves
1. Networking with PB (My profile at SSC involves interacting with them for confirmation)
2. Clear CFA L-1 June'18 and then hopefully used my contacts to appear for the F.O roles at HF (Outside India)
3. Also through Contacts appear for Boutique IB Firms as well (In India as well as abroad)
