Indeed. It's rough mate but short term pain and doing a lot on weekdays gives me flexibility on weekends to do more stuff socially and enjoy my free time. Once you're in the routine it comes pretty naturally although I admit it took a while to become used to

Quant investment analyst. EST. LO fund.

6:00am - wake up

7:00-7:30am - get to the office

7:30-8:00am - daily routine analyses and emails

8:00-9:30am - meetings or ad-hoc research (usually results are needed in a very short time frame to support investment processes).

9:30am-4pm - ad-hoc research or long-term research projects, monitor market activities and fund portfolios.

4pm-6pm - keep working on projects if they have not been finished or I am behind schedule.

8:00pm until ??? And weekends? - beyond 4pm Monday to Friday, no one will ask me to do any work, but typically I only have time to work on - 1. our infrastructure or 2. investigate things I personally find interesting or 3. think of new ideas - outside the normal work schedule. Also I am expected to keep an eye on what's going on in markets around the world.
