I’ve been on a long European vacation, but it’s back to the grind.
I kept up with a lot of reading and research and have some thoughts I will put together for another post.
I’ve made the guaranteed return venture make sense from a legal standpoint and I am certain I have the way forward.
Now the only question is timing. After all I have another job and work out of the country.
Buy Side Development
One of the benefits of this site is place I can document my thought process when thinking about various investments.
Maybe it will also eventually be a help to someone else that is trying to network their way into a AM/HF type role.
On vacation I spent some time really digging into development programs at different firms.
I am curious to hear your thoughts, dear reader.
Sell side to buy side? A good ol’ fashion direct mentoring/apprenticeship type relationship at a firm that fits? Sell sides formal training programs first?
Networking is the only way I will get my foot in the door. I recognize that. The CFA will probably help a little, but otherwise, I have not taken the traditional route to this career path.
I have to bank on others seeing that I want it more than everyone else.
Best to your investing!
