Traditional traders in institutions like banks or hedge funds are still better paid than quants. Apparently that is changing but this article quotes:
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.
Fair enough… But then strike out on your own instead of moaning about it. What you going to do? You say you’re smart but are you the gambling kind?
