What can I expect from a career in insurance or securities?

Some of the hottest jobs in finance are in insurance and include positions as an agent, broker, representative and in banking. Insurance/securities are a trillion dollar business that employs more than 3 million people in the United States alone. As the population ages and wealth grows, the demand for insurance and securities professionals is increasing and you can be a part of these growing fields. Jobs in insurance and securities involve helping individuals and businesses protect themselves from catastrophic losses and planning for their futures.
