    So yeah, the question is pretty much whether there are any decent finance related jobs that have a fixed timetable of 8 hours or at least 10.

    Working in the finance department of a corporation, sales/trading at an i-bank is mostly 10.5-12 hrs a day, accounting either in-house or at a private practice (big4/baker tilly/bdo etc), commercial banking, operations or risk at an i-bank..

    Most top finance jobs will require 11-12+ hours a day of commitment though.

    Public sector finance jobs are probably a little more reliable in terms of hours. More likely to get flexi-time anyway.

    Will be very different to working in a private firm though.

    What about asset management?
    I've heard that hours in asset management are relatively ok, something like 50 hours a week, and possibly a little more on some busy weeks.

    My friend at BlackRock said the hours were 11-12 hours a day normally.
