    I am interested in a future career in wealth management for a number of reasons. I like the idea of dealing with individual clients and there is also, as far as I know, an involvement with the financial markets (an area of interest for me).

    Also, I know it comes under the many services of IB's, although sometimes under a different name (e.g. RBS's Couttes), but I perhaps wonder whether it will be slightly less competetive then Sales & Trading? I feel that S&T might be tricky for me to get in to, as I am likely to graduate with a degree in Economics from, at the highest, a top 10 University. Not one of the 'targeted' top 5.

    I would greatly appreciate a reply from someone with some knowledge in this area, as mine is very limited. Any information in terms of competitiveness, salaries or just further detail about what 'wealth management' entails would be very helpful.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
