All retail banking roles will be eliminated in the next 20 years, only high net worth individuals will continue to rely on human investment advisors.


As long as it’s not the basic lowest tier retail it should be fine

I am guessing you mean institutional equity sales? It comes down to which asset class you are most interested in. But ultimately, it’s mastering the art of sales. That skill will be valuable and interchangeable down the road.


Intellectually, it’s probably less challenging than derivatives/structured products, fixed income, and fx/commodities sales.

Job won’t exist in 20 years is my guess

Need some advice... I started at a new agency recently. Almost immediately upon meeting one of my male colleagues (over zoom) I felt this attraction and genuine connection. Context: he’s 11 years older than me but both of us are single, never been married, no kids, etc. he’s not my boss and we don’t technically work together on projects. I want to get to know him better but don’t really know how to approach the situation (or if I even should) without it being inappropriate or awkward. Thoughts?

He’s more senior than me, his work hours are more constant; I’m a corporate attorney and my hours ebb and flow. I feel like his family doesn’t take my job as seriously (or when I say my hours are unpredictable and demanding), expects me to be both a housewife and work while doing WFH. Husband is great tho
