HF are a dying industry. Aggregating assets in a partnership and trading in the stock market through a prime broker was great in the 90s but its going to be unnecessary really soon. The high barriers to entry, increasing compliance costs and decrease in number of publicly traded securities are all reasons why HF will be severely disrupted very soon. I'm stuck here but if you're in the early part of your career get out now or focus on private equity.

Started in tax full time last year. I’m feeling very unfulfilled and unhappy with my decision. The hours are LONG and the pay is not what I thought it would be. I’m trying to stay positive but I’m truly dying inside and out and no one cares. I have no CPA or masters. If I leave any idea what kind of options there are out there or how to market myself. I think I’m a personable person and I good worker but I’m not sure people will look past not having CPA coming from PA. Thoughts?

Any and all advice is appreciated—thanks!!
