Investment Management

Industry Outlook

Investment management offers opportunities in many different financial sectors and careers, and job prospects are expected to be good overall in the next decade. Employment for securities, commodities, and financial services sales agents is expected to grow by 6 percent through 2026, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Opportunities for financial analysts, another popular job in the industry, are expected to be strong—growing by 11 percent (or faster than the average for all careers) through 2026. The DOL reports that "emerging markets throughout the world are providing new investment opportunities, which require expertise in geographic regions where those markets are located. Demand is also projected to increase as the growth of ‘big data’ and technological improvements allow financial analysts to access a wider range of data and conduct higher quality analysis.”
