Financial planners help people manage their money and plan for the future. They are knowledgeable about investments, income tax, estate tax, retirement, funding college education, and insurance. Some work independently, but many work for big corporations such as Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, and American Express. Increasingly, it pays to become a Certified Financial Planner (CFP).
Working for an insurance company means helping people and businesses manage risk to protect themselves from catastrophic losses. There are many ways to get involved with insurance: underwriting, sales, asset management, and customer service are just a few examples. Another focus area is the actuarial profession, which requires analyzing the financial impact of risk and uncertainty. Actuaries are consistently ranked as one of the most desirable occupations in the U.S
Investment banking helps companies and governments issue securities by forming a syndicate or network of investors. The leading investment banks include firms such as Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. There are many other regional investment banks. Typically, investment banking includes facilitation of mergers and acquisitions, seasoned equity offering, project financing, structured financing, derivatives, and equity and fixed income research.
There are many ways to combine your passions for finance and real estate: title insurance, construction, property management, real estate appraisals, brokerage and leasing, real estate development, and more. Securities, like mortgage-backed securities and REIT's (real estate investment trusts), are new and growing areas in real estate.
