Event Details

With the advances in technology and changes in finance job market, buy or sell side analyst jobs might not be the only options for CFA charterholders.  Many of our CFA charterholders have made exciting changes to their careers by leveraging their CFA knowledge as well as contacts through CFA global network.  Our speakers would share experiences of their successful transitions from:
Experience sharing on switching to FinTech industry  
From scholar through country head of Apple (computer) to lawyer  
From Academic to Fintech; and 
From technology and audit to business coaching;

In addition to those successful stories transitioning between industry, function, geography and cultures, we would also share unsuccessful stories on those who reverted back to their traditional buy side job after a stint working in startups and the important lessons learned.

The seminar is of interest of those young professionals who are interested in the latest career trends and developments as well as mid-life professionals contemplating a career change.
