Letter From The Author
Thank you for adding this book to your job search materials as you pursue a career in investment management. Since Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy in the fall of 2008, the world of financial services has seen many changes, and no area has been immune to some sort of additional regulation or scrutiny. Investment management professionals, and Registered Investment Advisors in particular, have seen stronger growth in numbers as investors began to turn away from large, super-market firms toward more independent, trusted advisors.
Use this book as a first step to understanding some of the more intimate details of what you can expect from a career in investment management, and how to prepare yourself along the way for interviews and internships.
You'll quickly learn that becoming an investment advisor puts you in a unique position with your clients, where your advice may be sought in all financial decisions they face, not just how to invest their 401(k) savings.Best regards, Rich Lemanski
