Should I consider a financial advisor/PWM career if I have connections?
I realize that PWM is generally looked upon as a freshman summer internship gig, but what about as a career? Here's my situation: about to graduate college in June, and two options: equity research analyst job, or PWM in my home city (large city) where my family is very well known and connected (not trying to brag, just saying). What would you guys do if you were in my situation? I realize that even with a much easier time building a book given my family's contacts, I'd still have to hustle. I guess while I do enjoy actual investing, I'd consider myself a good "people person" and making 400k+ a year working 8-5 M-F sounds nice if I could reach that stage. What say you guys? Anybody working or who has previously worked as a FA please chime in.
