How to switch to finance? MFE worthwhile?
Worked at Google and financial institution as developer. I feel like dev job kind of boring thus would like some change with more fun. And here in nyc I worked on portfolio analytics team and developed strong interest in finance and seems buy-side or portfolio manager earn way much more in a long run.
So how to build portfolio manager career from tech/software/quantitative background? I guess the first step is to get "real finance" individual contributor role (like quant)? Then would MFE /master of financial engineering a good option for career switch, or at least be a quant?
