Female Fish, while I agree that it's hard being in a male dominated industry, I've received hostility from other women at the firm despite my best efforts. Survival of the fittest at play?

Women in this industry are pretty mean. They don't want you to have it any easier than them. Currently in my mid 20s. I've experienced women in even just their 30s feeling threatened by younger female analysts. I've had so many women call me "dear" or "sweetie." And it's not unintentional.

So OP, you're probably pretty and smart. The haters are obviously jealous. In this industry, you have to be perfect to thrive and rise in the sense that u gotta look amazing, be sharp, and have a great attitude. If u are close to having all 3, women will feel threatened.

Same way with the dudes. It's vicious competition all around, but more obvious within genders because most people are more comfortable competing with the same sex.

I invested in a mutual fund 2 yrs ago (lump sum) and every Dec they pay out distributions and I get a 1099 for the gains. The fund has essentially lost all gains from the past 1.5 yrs. If I decide to sell it (assume same price as I bought it) do I get some kind of reprieve since I technically never realized those gains? Any help is appreciated.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?
