What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Investment Manager in London:
Early career is solid exams. Then they continue to examine more with increasing regulation. You must have an eye for detail. The ability to filter through large volumes of information and discern the important parts, and form independent opinion. Enthusiasm is not a must, but would make the job a lot easier and enjoyable. The ability to converse confidently to clients is important, and to convey complex investment solutions in a way the client can understand.
