Bump, I'd also be interested in hearing about where these people tend to exit - not much seems to be available on Linkedin, so anyone with knowledge of this year's exits would be appreciated.

Many of the groups are very new which is why you don't see much on LinkedIn. The top group on the street is Evercore and they formed roughly 2 years ago, so exit opps for juniors are basically unknown at this point. I know that some of them plan to move to traditional investment banking within Evercore.

On the flip side, some of the associates and VP's come from traditional investment banking or private wealth management.

Can anyone who works in this space shed some light on this? Seems like the EBs and some BBs have domination of shareholder activism, but PJT is getting into the space by acquiring Camberview. Are you pigeonholed by going into this?

A former colleague did 2 years as an analyst in Shareholder Activism (BB, within m&a) and then moved to equity research within the same bank. After a year he moved on to a family office. Just a reference point.

I'm grateful that I have two middle fingers, I only wish I had more.

Just spoke with an analyst in the Shareholder Advisory Group at Evercore. He said pay for analyst positions in SAG is directly in line with M&A roles (at Evercore ~175k after bonus).

But he stressed the limited exit opps as the downside, with most people having to lateral to M&A then basically start over the analyst track.

Same base and same bonus, EVR doesn't really bucket regardless of group. RX, MA, and cap markets all get paid roughly the same
