I want to pick stocks for a living
Hi all, I've been investing through my own portfolio since 2016 and I eventually want to do this as a full-time job. I know mega funds like Blackrock have ETF managers but I was thinking something like an ARK Investment Management role where I work side by side with a thesis and invest thematically within that universe.
I know there's a lot to learn and it's a different skill set, but I'd like to set up my career to become a public markets investor.
Does anyone have any advice on how to break into this career path? For starters, I'll be working in Investment Banking in NYC as a full time analyst out of college this coming august.
