Bank quants are not better paid? Run your own quant based operation

In summary, you can make way more on your own. Like in the millions per year as you scale up your own trading account.

This means that while successful traders in banks can still earn £500k+ ($625k+), successful quants tend to find their pay bounded at around £250k, or less. As one quant puts it, this isn’t bad for, “writing several lines of code,” but it’s also a frustrating when the traders using the tools you create are being paid a lot more.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out.
