I am writing to seek your opinion on some career advice. I am 37 years old, Canadian CA based out in Toronto and writing L3 next year. I have over 15 years of professional experience primarily in financial planning & analysis as well as financial reporting while working in the service-providing and manufacturing industries.
I am wondering that based on my professional experience, would I ever be able to enter investment finance or any related job where I can utilize my CFA designation or it is too late looking at my age. If the answer is yes, what kind of jobs should I try? The reason I ask is that most of CFA jobs need some sort of financial service industry experience even if they want enrollment/passing CFA L1/2/3.
Much appreciate your help folks!
