Fixed Income Research?
Hey boys, I need some insight into Fixed income research.
I am hoping to one day move into debt funds on the buyside with the ultimate goal of being a portfolio manager. With that in mind I have a qustion:
-Would going into Fixed Income research on the sell-side be a good background to moving to a buyside debt fund after a few years of work?
I am applying to internships directly on the buyside, but I am wondering if my plan should be to apply to buyside and simultaneously to sellside research if my ultimate goal is to be a debt fund manager? Or would it be better to try and go into the AM arm of BB's and then go to buyside later on?
Also, anyone know what analyst salaries and bonuses are for research analysts (less bonus i'd imagine as compared to IBD and S&T).
