Life in Copenhagen
Hi, long-time follower of WSO here.
Currently based in London at a sell-side, and I have a good chance an offer might be coming for a large AM in Copenhagen to work as a senior analyst at an equity fund. Never been to the city, so have a few questions --
-What's the life like in Copenhagen? I don't speak the language. I've also heard that it's tough for expats for making friends, dating and relationships. I'm single and all my friends/family are here in London and I just love the diversity, nightlife and culture here. Life is good here, I work maybe 50hrs a week.
-What's the comp like for AM equity analysts (non-) in Copenhagen? I have 6-7 years exp on both sell-side and buy-side. Currently on the sell-side ER and the comp is fine USD~110-120k base.
-Is it a bad career move? I mean it's not London/NY/SF. Would it be possible to move back to London or to NY? I did 2yr sell-side ER + 3yr HF L/S and now back in sell-side ER as the HF wasn't for me.
Appreciate your thoughts as always!
