All roads lead to Portfolio Management?
I know quite a lot of us aspire to be a Portfolio Manager. I was just wondering about the various other roles people assume in asset management. By roles I mean those that are as senior but having different responsibilities than that of a portfolio manager.
Also, its quite common to read the career progression of people in asset management i.e. Start off as an Analyst and work your way up to the role of a Portfolio Manager. What are the alternative routes that people can take on their way to becoming Portfolio Manager or a similar position within AM?
I'm sure most of us have read and researched about this stuff online. I just couldn't find a good resource to answer the above questions.
It'll be great if anyone can contribute to the discussion. It'll be even better if you could describe the career progression as well
“Once you decide on your occupation you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job, you must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret of success and the key to being regarded honorably. I’ve never once hated my job, I fell in love with my work and gave my life to it.”—Jiro Ono
