Stuck in Controller Role

First off, I just joined WSO and I'd greatly appreciate any help you can bring to the table. I'm really confused in my career path right now and just looking for some guidance. I worked at a big-4 accounting firm for 4 years in audit and left as a senior associate. I also got my CFA at this time which I hoped would be somewhate helpful. I mainly audited capital markets/hedge funds there and then took a job at a small hedge fund as the Controller working directly under CFO. I've worked there approximately 4 years and I've learned mostly everything so looking for some other opportunities. I've spoken to some recruiters but they just keep sending Assistant Controller and Controller jobs. What other options are there? I'm kind of bored at my job now and I'm not sure if I just need to join a larger company, more into PE or Real Estate or try to transition into a more financial analyst role. I guess with my background, what are some potential fits for my job with a good career trajectory? I'm willing to put in hours to make the most money.
