First Year compensation for PhD Finance

First time poster, so sorry if this has been answered before. I was wondering if anyone had an indication of what to expect for initial compensation for a finance PhD student from a top 5-10 program in the US. I have no private sector experience aside from a few internships. Upon graduation, I have an offer to join as an analyst at a multi strategy fund with around 1-5 Billion in AUM. Does anyone have a range of what they think a reasonable offer is so that I know if my offer is competitive?
