hmm, i've never met a chemistry quant. The only chemistry postdoc I met who wanted to get into finance, crashed and burned from lack of preparation.

It all comes down to how mathematical your degree is. I've known chemists who spent all their time integrating. I've known others who spent all their time doing lab experiments. If you you know a lot of maths and can market it right, then it may be doable.
