LO Fixed Income Comp

Can anyone point me to a source or provide me with some general stats on compensation?

Looking to get insight into comp for a LO fixed income analyst seat (IG/HY), post-MBA. I've seen comp discussions on here but they seem to be mostly for LO equity analysts.

I'm interested in firms outside your typical tops shops mentoned on this forum (T. Rowe/PIMCO/Wellington, etc..), such as American Century/Artisian or a similiar place that actively hires from MBA programs.However, any info would be greatly appreciated. 



 

Outside of the large shops, my sense is that comp is not great. I don't have a sense for American Century / Artisan, but IG / HY credit research at a smaller LO platform will most likely play ~150 base + less than 100% bonus your first full year out of MBA. This may or may not ramp up over time, but it's not a great signal on comp. In many cases, random CLO / private credit chop shop will pay better than the LO seat (although the benefit is that your WLB is probably better in the LO seat). There's a lot of baseline comp dispersion even amongst the larger LO platforms.
