The secret diary of a hedge fund employee

Carrie Sun had it all, or so it seemed: a prestigious job at a hedge fund as assistant to its billionaire founder, a good salary, and luxurious perks. Her memoir and our latest Instaread, Private Equity, describes her slow realization that she had to walk away from life at the top in order to truly live. 

Growing Discontent

The signs were everywhere, in retrospect. One day, Carrie became distracted by an email while running at the gym. She fell, resulting in severe injuries and burns from the friction. Another time, Carrie noticed that her firm’s lengthy slideshow on long-term goals ended with a single slide on community: “to be determined.” When a therapist confirmed that her job was hurting her health, Carrie finally decided to leave.
