I've been working in Asset Management for over a year now at one of the large asset managers in New York. I'm honestly getting tired of the finance hours but do enjoy making a nice paycheck. I'm on my way to getting my CFA and after I've finished that I'm thinking of making a move to a job with better hours/flexibility for taking time off. I'd like to work 40-50 hours or even less if possible.
I was thinking options might be Private Banking, PWM, corporate job at F500 company or maybe something at a hedge fund/PE firm like investor relations. I'd like to stay in investment management if possible but am wondering if anyone has any good career ideas with good work/life balance. Although I never thought I'd say it in college, money isn't everything. Time is even more valuable and I'd gladly trade down my paycheck a little bit for a lot more free time
