About :

In the traditional finance world (excludes quantitative finance) there are a lot of career paths available. I have tried to cover the basic paths however you should know that people with finance backgrounds have ended up in all different types of jobs.

Understanding what is required to get to specific careers is important as some paths require different degrees and experiences. These increase the costs associated with these paths and should be considered when reviewing compensation and job responsibilities.

1) Private Equity (Usually investment banking experience is required)
2) Hedge Fund (Usually investment banking experience is required)
3) Investment Banking (Undergrad required)
4) Wealth Management (Undergrad required)
5) Corporate Finance (Undergrad required)
6) Technology Jobs (Non-coding jobs and undergrad required)
7) Consulting (Undergrad required)
8) Business Development/Sales (Undergrad required)
9) If you work hard you could end up in more quantitative jobs such as operational research but usually more quantitative course work or experience is required.

Do corporate earnings follow any distribution? Could quantitive finance be useful to estimate future earnings to find the value of a stock? if yes then quants can do the job of financial analysts better than them.

Thank you for clearing this up. My brother works in wealth management. He makes his 80-90k and still has a life outside of work, and I think that’s what I’d like to pursue as I finish my finance degree as well.

I feel like Dimitri mis-characterized quite a lot here, and left some important stuff out... For one, private equity isn't small companies.... I'm credit analyst at a rating agency and we see a lot private equity transactions, these aren't companies that need $6mil to run their business. At least in my sector the smallest we see is usually a company that's already doing at least $100 million in revenue... and for us that's tiny. Plenty are over a billion or several billion in revenue. Also it's not just individuals its institutions, think pension funds and insurance companies etc. On the wealth management side yea he's right in that a lot of wealth management is managing peoples middle income to upper middle income retirements and assets and whatever but where most people in wealth management want to work is with high net worth individuals, people with a million or ideally way more in assets and will charge a fee for service somewhere in the 0.5% to 2% asset under management. So if you build a book of high net worth clients you can be making several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Again a lot of it is regular people retirements but most students who go into wealth management as a career are more interested in managing the money of these ultra high network individuals. Asset management is a big industry that he did not mention but think wealth management but for large institutions for example managing a pension fund for a fee % of assets under management.

Big fan of your quant vids though, very informative

Hey Dimitri, I love your videos, very condensed and informative. Can you comment please on science -> finance route, like going with PhD in Theoretical Physics to HF or AM firms. Is that possible to do just straight after graduation or an additional statistics/finance degree is necessary? Are there any benefits of having a PhD in a unrelated field (like theoretical physics) in quant finance?

Hi Dimitri, I'm from Italy and i'm about to take a BCs in CS and I would like to work in finance. What would you suggest to do in order to take this career path?
As I come from an Italian university, isn't my uni seen as a target school?
Would suggest to take a Master Degree in Finance or Quant or CS/AI ?

Also, PE/HF analysts do make loads more than the base numbers you/the report states. those numbers are deflated greatly by non-top programs, and you are talking about the top programs.

MBA/ IB Associate are not necessarily needed anymore to jump to PE (2 years as analyst is sufficient)

Important Correction:

Analysts do not go on to get an MBA in order to become an IB associate and then move to a PE/HF role. Rather, they will move directly as an analyst to either a PE associate or IB associate position. There is no reason why an analyst would get an MBA to become an IB associate when they can be promoted internally without one. People in finance who were unable/chose not to do banking directly out of undergrad will have to get an MBA and then become an IB associate. However, post-MBA associates are generally expected to stay at the bank for the long run and will face much more difficulty moving to a PE/HF role as those firms do not generally recruit IB associates.

Hey Dimitri! I’m a 16 year old high school student looking to plan out my future. I am highly motivated by money and that’s why I am so interested in the world of finance. First of all, thank you very much for this video. It really helped me understand a typical finance career path. I’m going into my junior year, and I feel like I have a great shot at getting into those “target schools” you mentioned. The dream is Penn (Wharton), but if not, then definitely NYU (Stern) or Columbia. I was wondering what you think about this career path for myself:
June 2020 - Graduate High School
May 2021 - Complete Freshmen Year of College
May 2022 - Complete Sophomore Year of College
May 2023 - Complete Junior Year of College
Summer 2023 - Internship at Investment Bank
May 2024 - Graduate College with BBA
May 2024 - Apply for Job as Investment Bank Analyst
August 2026 - Leave Job as Investment Bank Analyst
August 2026 - Begin MBA Program
May 2027 - Complete first year of MBA Program
May 2028 - Graduate with MBA
May 2028 - Apply for Job as Investment Bank Associate
May 2030 - Leave Job as Investment Bank Associate
May 2030 - Apply for Job as Hedge Fund Analyst
Sounds typical to me. Just want to earn a lot of money with the skills I have. Your opinion would be highly appreciated, along with any suggestions along the way. Thanks so much!
