Interested in a product manager role, tech consulting background but no financial market experience? Is it wrong to think that’s something I can learn on the fly or is that insurmountable?

What do you mean by financial market experience? Ideally you will become a PM in an industry you have consulting background in. Of course it’s possible to become a PM for a product where you don’t have experience in the field or market, but it’s certainly more challenging.

It’s a harder sell but not impossible. You just need to show initiative and that you’ve already started learning about the market before you’ve gotten the job.
