30y & adhd - CFA to switch into investment
Hi I have a question about my somehow special case.
I'm 30 years old and I have a BSc in a mix-up studies in between Economics and IT (Wirtschaftsinformatik in German). 6 year work experiance in requirement engineering, project management and team leader.
I was diagnosed with adhd 3 years (so way after my studies) ago and got my medication right since 2 years. I am now able to use my full potential and realized I reached a whole new level.
I am now feeling ready to sustain in finance and would love to work as investment analyst. This brings me to my 3 questions:
1. Is it too late to switch into such position from where i am now?
2. Will CFA be the right step for me to find a investment analyst position? I also considering an MBA but I try to evaluate my chances to shortcut
3. Will the missing medication on adhd be accepted as a reason for my path and my partly average grades? Or am I death before recruitment even heared/read about this?
Thank you for sharing your honest opinion on this.
