Analyst to Developer need advice
Hi, I’ve been out of the CFA community for a long time. Ever since the financial crisis I’ve been having a hard time getting back as an analyst. I’m currently a developer at a hedge fund. Ideally I’d like to become a quant dev. I’m also pursuing part time master in financial math, almost done. My current role bores me, building systems for researchers. I self taught everything in programming but I realized my c#/c++ ain’t that awesome to be building speedy trading systems for traders
At this point in life, I honestly do not know what else to do. I’m planning to take level 3, as you can see I’ve been out for almost 10 years on AF. Pretty depressed
I think times have changed. More analyst position requirements some development skills. But I’m not fully aware in what roles.
Thank you for your time and feedback.
