Fixed income is a very large asset class.

Maybe an analyst on a typical MBS desk?

Two things: Oaktree isn't AM and it should have been e.g. not i.e. (see: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/ie).

Fixed! Now, any insight in regards to my original post?

Doubleline is not really AM and certainly isn't large either. The i.e. vs. e.g. has always annoyed me, but so many people use it incorrectly I don't find it worth it to correct.

I don't expect the day-to-day for fixed-income is much different from equity at a large AM, but it's going to depend if you're an emerging sovereign analyst vs. high-yield vs. high-grade corporates, etc. Follow news flow, interact with sell-side, meet with managements, attend conferences, interact with PMs, read/analyze a lot of stuff.
