Hedge Fund Manager

Odds of Hanging On

Again, this job is very much performance-based and there is a throng of young hopefuls ready to swoop in and take your place should you falter. If you keep making profitable trades and manage hedge funds wisely (that is your title, so it makes sense you'd need to be good at it), you have a good chance of continuing to let the good times roll.
