In today’s investment industry, putting your head down, working hard, and expecting to move forward—as a firm or as an individual—is not always sufficient. To succeed, you must put the same level of energy into strategically mapping your career as you do into daily investment research.
Diversity is also of great importance in the industry today. Successful investment firms actively seek a wide range of perspectives. Diversity in decision making is good for clients, teams, and business. It helps firms avoid “groupthink,” and those who think unconventionally—particularly in investment management—increase their own chances of professional success.
So, how do we build this diversity and develop better career road maps for investment professionals? The best place to begin is with firm culture and connections through people, including seeking out the resources and skills for support at each stage of your career.
