Has anyone ever considered doing Equity Research? If my interests are healthcare and life sciences, would ER with a focus on this industry lead to better exit opportunities than consulting in this space?

ER almost always exits to IR, really doubt Corp dev/strategy exit would be better than consulting at same YOE. Also, ER industry is consolidating, so getting to sr. analyst with tenure (better CFO/PE/Corp dev exits) might be a rockier path than staying.

To those knowledgeable about Solo 401(k)s: is the proposed legislation eliminating the ability to Roth these at all income levels? The language seems to say “employee / employer” with regards to qualified plans but Solo 401(k)s are specially because you are alone and don’t have employee / employer relationships. I just discovered these like 2 weeks ago so I’m not in one yet but was considering setting one up. Roth option is the only way a Solo 401(k) benefits me.

Looking for advice! Ive been with my company a few years now, and although I’ve been given multiple salary bumps I still don’t feel like I’m being paid fairly for my workload. The raises I got were only after team members left and I basically absorbed their roles, and I started off at a very low wage. I’m super thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given and don’t want to come off as money hungry, but based on market research I’m still making well below average salary for my title.
