I am now on holidays from school and I am set on a career in Asset Management, specifically Hedge Funds. What are some things a high school student can do to best prepare for a career in AM/HF if any.

You are set on a career? At what 17 years old?

What you should do is keep your options open, and enjoy these years. Everyone wants to jump into the rat race without realizing how much less exciting it actually is.

I think- therefore I fuck

Yeah I guess. I have been set on since I was 16 really. I have done work experience twice at a Macro Fund and I loved every minute of it and I created some contacts in the industry, that will hopefully push my case after university provided that is still want I want to pursue.

None the less thanks for your advice

A friend who works at an HF says to strengthen quantitative skills, get into a target, and learn about the markets

Sorry to be a pest but you could you ask your friend what exact quantitative skills I should look over? Thanks a lot for asking your friend about HF advice

since im in high school he just said statistics, calc and computer science. with a core understanding of these subjects you'll be able to do stochastic processes, part diff eqs and coding languages in college

I wasn't set on Wall Street until really recently, so keep your options open (I am in my late 20s).

If you see that you lack major skillsets for the field (for example if your math skills suck) work on that because high school is a time to mold your skills, which will affect how you do in college. That's all you need to do. Don't worry about resume building yet. Try to get into a decent school, but, more importantly, find your real interests, hobbies, and be social. Working harder later is easier when you are well rounded and have some breadth of character.

Study math and statistics sciences, be curious, look at the markets. Read and read and read. (repeat)

Don't try to lose small, try to win big.
