I'm starting at an Asset Management/hybrid credit hedge fund in a European country with EU2-10bn AUM as an investment analyst. I have 2 years working in M&A in New York and ~1 year in PE. Went to an Ivy undergrad and also have a masters degree. My total comp, including bonus, will be around $110-$130k, depending on the exchange rate (bad time to get paid in non-USD right now).
Talking to some friends, doing some looking around online, I was under the impression someone at this sort of position should expect at least $150k in total comp. There are complicating factors, such as differing tax rates, government subsidized benefits, etc. that skew country-specific compensation levels, but I wanted to get a sense of what you all thought. Happy to share more in a pm - don't want to reveal too much publicly.
