Hi, I'm quite(regular AM, not private equity or hedge funds). if you go on WSO or similar websites, you will find tons of threads like "a day in the life of an M&A banker" or "a day in the life of a trader". for some reason, however, I havent found a thread where someone explains what it is like to be a fixed income analyst or PM at a large mutual fund (e.g. AGI, , ).
Is someone here working in thsi field? and if so, can you provide some insight on 1. daily responsibilities (and please explain the technicals a bit as well, id really appreciate that), 2. career paths (like how to break into AM, typical paths, career prospects, opportunities, a bit compensation (though money is not the reason why im interested in AM. if so, i would probably post thisand replace fixed income analyst/ PM with lev fin or M&A analyst), 3. work atmosphere, culture, 4. future of AM and 5. any general advice on how to break into AM
thanks a lot for any replies, insights, etc.!!
