I have been in a product management role for fund products at a Private Bank for the last 6 years but I would like to be able to move into a product strategy/positioning role at an Asset Management firm ? Very passionate about products and want to aim for a role that sits between portfolio management & business development at an Asset Management firm. Is this a feasible transition? How should I approach it ?

I think it is very feasible. Are you focused on any particular asset class? If yes, then focus job search on equity product manager roles. If you are not that specific, then look for junior product roles. Every AM firm has them. You may need to step back a little to go forward but it’s worth it if it’s the direction you want.

Not super fixated on an asset class but if given a choice then I would pick equities. Thanks much Jennifer.
