Good afternoon all,
I feel naive for asking, but Is it possible to make the jump from Wealth Management/Advising to Private Equity? I entered the broker business 5 years ago knowing that advising was as far as I would make it without a 4 year degree, so I looked at it as a way to gain client facing & market experience while I finished my degree. I've now graduated from a reputable college, majored in Economics (good GPA), and am at a Wirehouse (hold Srs.7, Srs. 63, Ins. and taking the CFP in a month, although I know most of this is irrelevant to PE). I've always been absolutely fascinated with PE/VC and would jump at an opportunity to make the transition, but I'm afraid that I've gone too far down the rabbit hole and am probably too old at this point (29). Probably doesn't help that I'm in MN either.
Any insight would be much appreciated. Thank you.
