Fed stress tests

From what I understand, they tested the capital's capability in absorbing losses by shocking credit and market risks.What about liquidity risk? Or is it implied that a well-capitalized bank can withstand liquidity pressure as well?

Entry level Quant advice?

It's a hedge fund anyway so it makes business sense to pay someone with a low basic recurring salary. maybe the variable bonus is significant to compensate. But the problem is, do you think the fund is / will be profitable?
