Does anyone have a ballpark figure for 1st year compensation for an investment analyst position at a top-tier asset management group? Trying to figure out what would be standard street comp. Thanks.

    How variable is the bonus depending on which firm/group you're at? Would you happen to have 2nd year figures as well? Thanks.

    I've heard first year bonus can run anywhere from 15-40%

    Wow that's a lot less than I expected. Is there a particular reason for this? I thought if you're a big revenue center you should be compensated better.

    Thats more than I thought

    If you have a group that manages $15b and collects a 1% fee for 25 investment professionals, you're looking at $6m pulled in per professional. 70k would be a rounding error at that point.

    Am I thinking about this wrong?
