Hello everyone, I am fund accountant about to complete my CPA in June 08, have been working as an fund accountant for over 3 years now , overall i've been in the financial services industry for around 6 years (including 1 year as a para planner!), But now i've been provided with the opportunity to become an investment analyst and that is something that really interests me and ive specialised finance qualification aswell, but am finding it real hard to make the decision - cause ive already got about 3 years experience in accounting and there is good possiblity of me becoming a financial controller in 3-4 years time, but my interest lies in analysis and modelling but i don't really know what sort of future opportunities will that open up? should i take it up the new job or stick to accounting If the economy stops growing for the next few years would be there demand for analysts? Accounting is a safer occupation in that sense as statutory accounts still have to made wether a company makes a profit or a loss will appreciate any help!!
