JP Morgan: 12 Hours a Day for 2.5 Years and 10000 Hours to be a Wealth Manager

2nd August 2021 | Hong Kong

How long does it take to be a wealth manager?  It takes 10,000 hours to master any subject, which is 12 hours a day and 6 days a week for 2.5 years, JP Morgan Asset and Wealth Management CEO Mary E. Erdoes shared when asked what kind of people does she hire and what kind of training are provided to be a wealth manager in an interview on Bloomberg Wealth with David Rubenstein, who is the co-founder of leading private equity firm Carlyle Group.  “If someone works 8 hours a day and 5 days a week, it will take approximately 5 years to master any subject.  On Wall Street Street, its 12 hours a day and 6 days a week that cuts down to 2.5 years.”  (12 hours x 6 days x 52 weeks = 9,360 hours; 8 hours x 5 days x 52 weeks = 10,400 hours)
