I used to do RFPs for a large AM, with a lot of exposure into our alts/real estate funds.

Are you an RFP writer now? If so, it’s similar, but a little bit more insular. Make sure you know your way around their investment lineup, as well as distribution. If they distribute internationally, it’s worth knowing the differences between the regions/countries too.)

If you’re not already an RFP Writer, reconsider. It’s a thankless job with very few paths to anything outside of RFPs. Good people tend to find other lines of work, so team management is often poor (not always true - I had a great boss, but she was the exception)

Currently not in RFP or any investment manager, at a data provider rn. The firm does actually seem to have good career progression and culture (my friend is in the team, but recruiter headhunted). However as you say progression is within RFP titles. My interest is more in investor relations within alternatives as I havent got the skillset or experience for a investment team role which is fine with me, more interested in relationship building/fundraising further down the line.

Ahh okay cool. Yeah I guess its more partners doing the selling but I just thought senior IR members took the lead on some fundraises. Is this not usually the case?

What are you working in now that you left RFP?

I run product marketing for a fintech company, but have jumped around a bit since leaving.

In terms of pay my understanding is RFP is the same as IR anyways as it is within their IR dep
