Working in banking part time/slower pace or at smaller firm

A friend of mine has been working for top big international banks for last 15 years all over the world and lately in Zurich. On his last job he was a senior banker. He would like to change to a slower pace type of job as this type of stressful pace is not good for him. He is in the area of investments and would like to continue to be in this area of finance. He thinks that the best way to slow down but still stay in finance here in Switerland would be to look for a job in a smaller family office or asset management house and get an 80% job as the big banks would be very stressful. He is in no rush and is waiting for the markets to pick up in terms of employment.

Any ideas or comments on how to find a less stressful job that would give more work life balance would be very much appreciated. Also any ideas of family offices or smaller asset management ourfits would be appreciated. He is looking in Geneva area, Lausanne, Swiss riviera on the lake.
