I'm interviewing for arole at an entrepreneurial firm with a large capital float that they use to collateralize their primary business. Had the second round yesterday; it went very well. I don't know if they'll pick me (it's down to two candidates). There are *ton* of risks with taking the job, but I think it might be too sexy to pass up, so I'm leaning towards saying yes if they pick me. One concern I have regards research platforms - I highly doubt they are aware of what Bloomberg or Factset is, and I don't want to demand that they shell out $25k/yr for a subscription while I'm negotiating salary.
I do need data though if I'm to manage this portfolio. I want to be able to quickly access historical yield curves, equity prices, relative valuation, equity financials, would love to have the sell-side view on specific equities, etc etc etc. These are things I have access to at my current firm and I would hate to part with them. Are there any sites / platforms that offer slices of Bloomberg functionality for a slice of the Bloomberg price? I am hoping to cobble together an acceptable set of subscriptions for a couple grand / yr and let them know I'd need it.
