A career in finance used to mean going straight into an investment bank from university.
But tougher regulations, lower pay, and a work culture of long hours are making that a less attractive prospect.
If a career in a bank doesn’t sound attractive but you still want to manage other people’s money, then asset management could be for you.
The firms are smaller, leaner and can have a more collegiate atmosphere. But it’s hard to get a job.
Luckily, Sebastian Stewart, head of client services at Somerset Capital Management, has a presentation that can fix that.
Stewart gave the presentation at a conference organised by Stanhope Capital in 2016 and we got hold of the slides.
