Default Advice in getting into private banking, investments and fund management

Hi, Im an undergrad in NTU business (marketing). What can i do to better my chances to get into these sectors?

You either get a summer internship at any of the global investment bank or you can forget about it.

Nobody gives a hoot for additional certs like CFA or Finance major, it is expected for most people in the industry anyway.

Relevant Internships are the key. Offcourse internships within the Investment management industry, and the more famous the brand name the better.. but even if its a boutique shop take it. When you start applying for graduate opportunities, your resume will need to show demonstrated interest in the industry.

Also, your NTU GPA will be more important than CFA & you should look to add finance as an additional major for your degree. Or at least minor in it or take electives. In the interviews, you will be tested on your technical knowledge.

Change your major to finance.

Otherwise forget about it.
