It's about time I do another post on here and rather than go into detail on a specific aspect of the industry I'm just going to open it up to a general AMA. The E&F (and asset allocators in general) industry is sort of a black box. Most people don't know a ton about the industry and it isn't necessarily seen as a prestigious opportunity to those gunning for the traditional IB/PE path. When I first entered the industry I didn't expect it to be a long term career, but my perspective has changed significantly.
Read the links below for a general overview of the industry and some thoughts I've had on various aspects. Most of my current work is investing in alternatives (Hedge Funds, Private Equity, Venture Capital, etc.) but I can answer questions related to any asset class we invest in. Ask away.
