Financial engineers pursue rewarding careers in a variety of areas: some work within banks that create, sell and trade financial instruments, also known as the “sell side,” and others work on the “buy side” within investment firms, mutual funds and hedge funds. Many serve corporations and governments that need to earn a return on their investors’ money, raise capital and manage various risks — from changes in interest rates to fluctuations in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates.
