Job Opportunities for CFA that have some freedom?

I was just wondering if any CFAs out there were able to find a job that offers some sort of freedom such as being able to choose your own hours or being able to work from home a couple of days a week, instead of being forced to go to work and punch in/out at a specific time.

Im not talking about starting your own business but an actual job/career that is typical for CFAs and allows more freedom.


PS: I am willing to put the hard work in but I just ask because I’m a Level 2 candidate and just want to know what my future will be like in terms of being able to work on my own time.
