I read this somewhere:
"If your goal is to find arbitrage opportunities, MS in CS is more relevant. Most arbitrage traders in equities, futures, or FX do not need sophisticated math to find trading opportunities. However, if your goal is to work in risk management, exotic derivatives, or fixed income, a MS in Applied Math may be more relevant.
In general:
Quant Researchers = Mastery of Math with basic programming skills for prototyping and statistical research.
Quant Developers = Mastery of Programming with basic working knowledge of quant finance math."

Is the above true? How is the market for those 2 highly specialised professions? Should i follow the career path to a specific one or just follow the one that im good at (or passionate) and hope for the best? I wonder if Machine Learning and AI will replace the researchers/analysts or developers...

Thank you in advance!!!
