What are some common exit ops for those looking to leave fund accounting altogether (PE/HF)? Been doing this for over 5 years after leaving PA as a senior. Want to see what other careers out there are feasible that do not revolve around FA. What roles could I go for in fintech/tech/startup space that are not coding?

I am looking for a new job at the end of a long career. I have excellent experience in IP and Supply Chain Management. I've been fortunate to be in a high-paying position in the Los Angeles area and I rarely see comparable positions posted.

Any recommendations for finding the rare executive-level legal positions or for landing on the radar of the big executive search firms would be much appreciated!

When does it become smart to switch to Roth investments?
