I am rank holder CA and currently working in Kotak Investment Banking as Analyst .To get an entry level break in the world of finance, you need qualification specifically related to finance. Passion for finance is good thing but if i ask you to calculate Beta of a security, you can not. That is perfectly normal as you have not learned your theory concepts.

Top MBA is desired for a head start. The other solution which i will recommend to you is to do CFA (AIMR/ICFAI). My company prefer CFA + engineer background for areas like Applied Finance, Financial Modelling etc. You dont have to leave your job. Study consistently every evening and on weekends and appear for exams. Take your time and learn your finance concepts well. In interview they are going to ask you all the basic concepts and you need to be expert.



Thanx Mr. Akhil for your valuable advice...........
