Finance, as a career choice, has been around for long. Historically, a career in this field revolved around two aspects — accounting and fund disbursement. However, until a few decades ago, the repetitive nature of these jobs and advances in technology — leading to a huge amount of the work getting automated — dissuaded people looking for challenges from joining these industries.

This has changed over the last 30 years, owing to significant developments in the finance industry. Today, finance is more about investment planning, engaging in mergers and acquisitions, funds mobilisation, risk-management as well as financial engineering, which uses complicated products like derivatives, mortgages, etc. Essentially, the field now requires foresight and professionals with the ability to take calculated risks while trying to profit from them.
