QuoteOriginally posted by: Alekkso that's basically the same question: what can you do after a quant job ? You will maybe tell me that at the age of 50, after a career in the quantitative finance, you don't really need another job (at least financially speaking ?)I don't think this is true, assuming you have a family in the NY-NJ area. You could barely finish paying off mortgage, and your kids would be starting college: it could be a rather traumatic time for such a scenario.If you do not marry (have no kids) and live very frugally, maybe you can save maybe a million or a couple (if you are lucky) in 20 years, and then retire in some less expensive place/country.
