Recently laid off from BB trading desk. Looking for other opportunities, how difficult is it to break in from trading to investment management?
my background is in, i've been at merchants/banks on their energy/oil desk and was recently laid off due to some factors outside my control. i've been looking to switch roles in the industry to become a equity analyst specializing in energy. i passed cfa level 1. how can i pivot and market myself effectively? going back to school right now is not an option. is it basically just networking and cold emailing/messaging people that are willing to strike up a conversation and see where it goes from there? i have been working on an investment pitch do a style type of report to show an example of my work.
