Do many people working in banks/investment management/private equity/finance/wealth + asset management have postgraduate degrees? Or are postgraduate degrees mainly for people who might want to go into research or teaching at university?

I am currently complete a PG degree, I am currently interviewing for roles in S&T. The vast majority of my cohort are looking to join banks etc.

Yes.
Most seem to have at least one postgrad qualification.
Many also have an amba accredited mba with a strong finance or stats component.

Is it worth getting two master's if they are both in Finance but specialise in different areas and both got Finance in their name? Or should you do something slightly different?

It depends on funding, the specific unis and personal ambitions.
If self-funding from personal savings or part time earnings and with regular accomodation bills to pay, it is probably not worth it.
If sponsored by an employer or via a full tuition fee & living expenses third party funding source and the uni has a prestigious reputation or is widely recognised for finance on an international level- likely to be worth it.
