Goldman Sachs PWM: Wealth Management Professional vs. Private Wealth Advisor

On the Goldman Sachs website these two job descriptions seem quite similar. Could anyone provide some insight as to the differences between these two positions i.e. daily duties and responsibilities. Ideally would love to hear from someone who worked at GS PWM or knows someone that did!! Thanks in advance

Wmp is the support individual who is usually more admin and client contact focused on the PWM team while the financial investment professional is more market focused. However, at most firms this line is quite blurred and the title doesn't necessarily mean you'll be doing one thing or the other.

Any info on London compensation for an analyst? It would be really useful to get to know the actual difference between both roles since from the above explanation it seems that WMP is like back-office. Is there like a path WMP -> PWA or something like that?

And I guess hours are different than IBD, but any insight would be much appreciated.

Cheers
