High Yield Long Only Comp (Sr Analyst) // Exits

Senior VP in HF - Other

[repost over here from AM as the HF side has more traction]

Curious comp ranges people are seeing for Sr Analysts at long only mangers for high yield - salary/bonus. Does HY comp differ from IG? Also, the differences if any from massive firms 20bn+ vs smaller 1-5bn. There is a lot more info on equity AM comp than credit.

Also - for those that leave the buyside by choice or by downsizing of the industry, what are typical exits people have seen. Seems like there are a lot less potential exits than on the PE side, but could be totally off base.

Curious to hear about exits too. For L/S and sector focused funds. To OP, can't help much on HY comp but how many years of exp do you have?
