1. What are the prospects for a mid career like me who has no prior relevant experience? Will it be as if Iím a fresh grad?
2. What other skills do I need to beef up in my CV?
3. My current salary is about 100k. Will I expect to take a cut when I make the jump?

Thanks!
The biggest hurdle would probably be the lack of experience combined with your age (given that you have worked FT for quite a while already)

1. I'd recommend buy-side equity research/investment. IB/PE/HF would be quite a stretch imo given their stringent pedigree requirements and the stiff competition from BB bankers or PE/Asset Management Investment Professionals.

You'd probably have to go for more junior roles in smaller firms (local boutique investment firms/family offices)

2. Pass CFA Level 2. Beef up your technical skills (3-statement financial modeling, investment due diligence, investment thesis formation). Show interest in the industry (pick a few sectors of interest such as Healthcare/Energy and know them inside out).

3. Most probably have to take a significant cut for the roles mentioned in point 1, but it depends. Can go to mycareersfuture for examples of some of these roles and their corresponding salary range.

Does anybody have information about the comp for local bank IB (DBS, OCBC, UOB)?
Particularly at the analyst and associate levels.

Your profile sounds a hell lot like mine. Was a chem teacher and completed the CFA. Left the moment my bond ended and somehow bumbled my way into buyside

1. Your prospects are worse than a fresh grad honestly. Many grad programs aren't even open to you. You'll need a fair amount of luck and networking to get yourself somewhere simply because teaching has literally no tangible skills that can be transferred.

2. Financial modelling and writing pitches. You will be asked to prepare a pitch for interview or you might want to send one out along with your CV.

3. Absolutely yes. I had a huge pay cut myself and I wasn't at 100k yet. You're looking at going back to fresh grad levels so you need to think very carefully if this is for you.

Do you even know what you are talking aboutÖ PE and HF are buyside roles.

Anyone have a sense on the current comp and career progression for the different high finance roles?

Hey, you'll need to further narrow down into scope (FO/MO/BO) and the tier of the bank (BB, boutique, local)
