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

Have 40k sitting in cash in my fidelity. Outside of that, I have 25k invested in Robinhood, 16k invested in fidelity and 18k in my 401k. I got into investing a month ago and I’ve seen some decent returns so far but everything seems overpriced at the moment. I keep waiting for a dip but I also don’t want my 40k to just be waiting around not growing. Should I dump it into index funds until I see a dip in a stock I want and then pull it out and invest? Or be patient and wait for the dip?
