Comparing Endowments: Factors to Consider
I am considering transitioning to an endowment (goal is to stay in the E&F space for the rest of my career), and have two investment management companies which I am very far along the process in. If I am fortunate enough to have the ability to choose, what are some of the factors I should consider?
Factors Currently Being Considered:
Learning Experience / Intellectual Stimulation
Scalability of Responsibles / Ability for Internal Growth
People / Culture
Pay is very low on my priority list since both endowments' pay is commercial given the hours and high positive impact (~100k+ for analysts, ~200k+ for associates)
<1yr of IB at CVP/LAZ/EVR//MS/
Very passionate about LP / capital allocator space and love the mission of endowments
Summary of Firms
Endowment A is $10b+ fund with 15+ investment professionals. Offer is generalist.
Endowment B is $2b+ fund with 5 investment professionals. Offer would be for private assets.
