Considering I personally know at least one person who did exactly what you're describing (big salary still pending), I'd say yes, that's very possible. ;) I think am_Unition is defending the people who stay in physics, not the ones who jump ship.

Also there's this thing, which ought to prove that physicists have definitely already left their mark on quantitative finance.
