How much money can a quant ACTUALLY make?

Daniel Duffy

C++ author, trainer
Thanks man, this is definitely one of the best responses. I started this thread because I wanted to see if anyone else has been in the same position I'm in. I'm not money crazed or anything but I do want to be at least a millionaire and have that freedom. I'm in college still studying Applied Math and Physics so I think I have the background to get into quant finance, but also know how to make web and mobile apps and will always be thinking of ideas for one. I'm trying to figure out the path to take to be super successful in quant finance, what that life would be like compared to being a serial tech entrepreneur.
Anyone can make a million. It's holding on to it that will give you sleepless nights :D
