I've always dreamt of going into IB. It's sad how passionate I can be about the way concepts from mathematics and physics can be imported into finance to create dynamically balanced portfolios, or for its uses in speculation. However, I've always felt like I want my job to be my life - I've never really thought seeing the world or raising a family is something that would interest me.
Recently, my view on that aspect of my life has changed vastly. This has caused me to rethink the career path I'll aim to follow. I still wish there was some way I could become a quant or something like that, but I don't see how such an intense job allow for any other kind of ambition.
Are there many other highly quantitative/technical jobs in finance that would allow one to follow other interests, such as raising a family?
