Hi,

It seems to me that the career in areas like:

Financial Analysts,
Financial Examiners,
Actuaries,
Treasurers and Controllers,
Accountants,
Budget Analysts,
Auditors and
Financial Managers

are some what similar. So can i switch job among this if i just got a degree in Business or Accountancy? And do anyone know what is the starting pay of these jobs?

I am very confuse about careers in Finance and Banking, so can anyone who knows more about these areas please enlighten me?:)

I don't think anyone considers equity research to be a middle office role given that analysts see clients as well.

In fact, many equity research analysts have an accounting background because they usually need a strong understanding of the balance sheet.

Some of them also have exp with their own respective industry, eg DOW chemical -> covering the sector.
