Career in Fixed Income, Structured Products
I'm a CFA Level 3 candidate. I've around 4.5 years of work experience, but thats more in a back office kind of role. Not employed currently but I would like to pursue a career in Fixed Income. Precisely speaking, the world of structured products and distressed finance investing interests me. I also like to follow the sovereign bond markets. I know that getting into a profile that deals with structured products can be challenging. Just wanted to know whats the kind of career progression and roles one can expect within the aforementioned job profiles. What kind of roles can I look upto which can help me transition into those roles smoothly? Also, would a masters in finance with electives in those specified areas help? Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
