I currently have been working for 2+ years at an asset management firm as a multi-asset risk analyst. I recently taken a liking towards fixed income and commodities due to the nature of these asset classes and the sense that there is more alpha in these than equities (which imo is fairly crowded). My question is, how can I switch careers, what is a daily life like and how does the role differ compared to an equities quant in terms of skills? Also, how many researchers cover commodities and does it require different skills than fixed income (Do commodity researchers analyze futures markets/technical analysis or use fundamental oriented research such as looking at energy companies?)
Thanks in advance.
