1.) The actuarial curriculum would give me skills in probability and statistical inference, statistical modeling, credibilty theory, financial mathematics, Options pricing and manging risk, and corporate enterprise finance and investments. Say I throw in a C.F.A credential would this skill set give me the potential to become a successful investor/trader or should I just become a quant if this is really what I want to do?

2.) Does the advanced mathematical knowledge a quant learns give them the potential to become highly successful investors/traders? In other words can all this advanced financial modeling and analysis be used to exploit the market and make $$$ given you have a large bankroll?

3.) when I pass the first 4 actuarial exams (probability, financial mathematics, statistical modeling and stochastic processes, financial economics(option pricing), and credibility theory) would these plus my degree be enough to land me a entry level quant position?

4.) Is there an examination process for becoming a quant? What is the starting salary for a quant and what is the ending salary of the average retiring quant?

Sorry for the long post. thanks in advance!
