I don’t have the comp data off the top of my head (although you should be able to find some reports online that break that down). The biggest question that I have is how many YOE do you have and what level would you come in at the fund? I ask because a sub-$1bn fund is pretty small and is much riskier (but could also be a great long term opportunity if the fund does well). If you’re on the younger side - I might suggest going to the bulge, getting that experience and training, and then jumping ship to a smaller shop if you want. It’s easy to go from a big shop to a small shop. Very hard to do the opposite

I’ve got a diverse background in that I was in the Navy for 10 yrs and have been in bulge banking (advisory for what this fund does) for 3 yrs as an associate/sr associate going for VP. The fund itself has been around for about 10 yrs and they have a HF strat as well and they’re fundraising has been strong lately, so less worried about that.
