Passed L3 - Options for career change

Recently passed level three (passed all levels on first attempt). I am looking for ideas to help transition my career into Quant Research/Investment Management. I have extensive skills in data management and databases and am fluent in numerous programming languages (C#, Java etc.). I have been working as a Management/IT consultant for about ten years in the field of Data Warehousing and financial rules around financial and ledger systems for FS (principally life insurance and re-insurance) firms. My educational background is in Management Science/Operations Research. Any ideas would be appreciated.
