How to become an Investment Advisor

As a general rule, an Investment Advisor must possess a bachelor's degree. To advance in the profession, that degree should be related to finance or business administration. Many Investment Advisors choose to go on to obtain a master's degree as well as other professional designations.

Most employers require Investment Advisors to have a bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, statistics, business administration, or economics. This education may also include coursework in risk management, taxes, financial analysis, corporate budgeting, estate planning, tax law, mathematics, and accounting policies and procedures.

To do this, Investment Advisors must know and understand how to read a company's financial statements and to analyze various costs, expenses, commodity prices, sales, and tax rates so that the company's value can be determined. Based on that information, an Investment Advisor should be able to project the company's future earnings. Investment Advisors typically work with securities firms, insurance companies, investment banks, mutual and pension funds, the business media, such as newspapers, radio and television, and other businesses.
