Recently signed as a 1st year research associate at a large asset manager (think Fidelity/MFS/T Rowe) and was curious what anyones thoughts/suggestions were in terms of lateraling from out in a year or two to do a top MBA/join a hedge fund?
I know the typical route is from banking - however I was curious if anyone had an experiance from an Asset Management point of view. I also was curious about compensation at these large mutual funds? Would you think on average they make more than what would be made in other fields ?
Thanks for your help!
