Moving from corporate finance to asset management
Hoping for some useful advice regarding my prospects of moving from corporate finance to asset management.
Bit of background about me: graduated 2013 with a degree in econ from a non-target and started working for a strategy consultancy, specialising in FS. I attempted to make the move to asset management through 2016 but struggled because of my experience against candidates with relevant experience and therefore decided to take a job in corporate finance as a stepping stone. Now worked in corporate finance the past 12 months and want to start attempting to make the jump again, but don’t seem to be making much traction. Since graduating, I have also passed CFA Level I (CFA II Candidate), CAIA Level I (CAIA Level II) candidate and the IMC. While these have helped get interviews, I am not finding they are a game changer.
Would appreciate thoughts on what things I could do to improve my prospects and possible options for making the jump?
Thanks in advance,
