Financial Analyst vs. Financial Advisor Workshop hosted by Waddell & Reed (Tuesday, 10/28, 5-6 p.m.)

Tuesday, 10/28, 5-6 p.m., Career Services Center, Round Room

Financial Analyst vs. Financial Advisor Workshop hosted by Waddell & Reed

Join us for a workshop with UC San Diego alumni James Haug, who serves as District Branch Manager at Waddell & Reed. The goal of the workshop is to educate students regarding a career in Wealth Management/Financial Advising versus a career as a Financial Analyst specifically related to the investments realm.  Typically James receives resumes from UC San Diego students focused on using analytical skills to help manage large portfolios such as institutional investment funds, mutual funds, or hedge funds with the intent to work as an advisor for a few years while gaining experience in finance before making a switch to managing assets.  Unfortunately, the path those students want to walk is not how people become asset managers for institutional type funds.  The workshop will provide clarity to these students as to what they will need to do if they are serious about a career in either field.
