Can anyone enlighten me on what a job in a mutual fund might be like? I'm not talking about a major wall street firm. But more of a smaller tier firm. With maybe 2-10 billion under management. I threw in the towell on a 5 year trading career last week because I want to find something more stable now that I have 2 kids. I made money every year trading but not enough to compensate for the risk. Time to get a real job. The initial reception I am getting from people is that I'm branded as a wild card trader. Hopefully someone on ET has some advice they can give on the mutual fund/money management business. Just to make myself clear and to keep some of the harrasing threads to a minimum.....I'm not trying to get investor money. I'm trying to make a career switch. Although I think I would be good in a sales position, I don't think I would enjoy it. I'm more interested in finding an analyst position where I can learn the business and work my way up. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any ideas.
