What should I expect for comp as an equity research associate at a $7B buyside long only equity manager? This would be my first ER gig but I do have 6+ yrs of experience at a FoF. Is $150K all-in shooting too high? I don’t want to turn them off with “my expectations”. Thanks in advance!

Where are you/the firm located? $150k all in seems low if anything

This is right around the ballpark I was thinking. How do I stay vague? If they ask directly what my expectation is, what would I say to that?

I’d say $250k+, with 30%-50% being variable (bonus)
Unrelated but mind sharing how you made that jump? Any tips for getting to a long only?

This is more like NY comp

Do tell what you end up with. I am an equity analyst in a long only equity fund. Coincidentally we are also managing 7bn USD. I have a masters degree but only 1YOE making 70k

Gotya. Yeah it sounds like the pay gap between the US and France is pretty meaningful. I don’t have an official number yet but I’m now expecting somewhere between $100-$150K base and bonus on top of that.

We all know how inflation can derail our Retirement Planning dreams!!Though it's better to start investing as early as possible,but HEY, all is not lost even if you start little late. We all have our family responsibilities when we start our career, so "INVESTING FOR SELF" takes a back seat.
Just a perspective, even if someone at the age of 45 years starts investin for his retirement, he can decently manage the same with discipline and regular investing.
Happy to discuss with anyone on this!!
