U have to be exceedingly good in math to be a quant. I failed to enter NUS quantitative finance major with a first year CAP of 4.65. I suspect part of the reason is bcos I failed to give a satisfactory ans y I got a B+ for one of my math mod.

Also, my brief research about quant that time told me that Singapore does not offer much opportunities as a quant.. If u wan to be a quant u might have a better chance overseas.

Not really...quants are mostly under-rated because they are not as vocal and in the limelight as the rest of the financial markets teams like sales, trading...but they are very smart people.

Did you pull that number out of your ass while taking a crap?

So i say frontline staff can easily make $100,000 a month on basic, commission and bonus. Believe or not?
