Looking back at life on the buy side

A buysider's fall from grace

For Turney Duff, life on Wall Street's buy side was full of excess, whether it was money, alcohol, drugs or sex. But after 15 years, he called it quits.

"I was constantly trying to top myself ... A private jet to Vegas is cool, but a private jet with hookers and eight-balls of cocaine is much cooler. And the next time you've got to bungee jump on your way to Vegas, so you're just continually trying to top yourself and there's no winning in that," Duff said.
