I made $350K all-in 2-3 years out of college working at a hedge fund. How should I interpret this compensation figure? Is it "high" or "low"?
As background, we are in the ~$1-10bn size range with ~5-15 investment professionals. Our performance target is to return in line with the index but with half the volatility (~100-150% gross, ~25% net), given that we typically actually make money on our shorts.
A lot of people are skeptical of the sumzero report, but I feel like it is a decent dataset in an area where limited data is available. Is it fair to say that this compensation would be ~80-90th percentile given my experience and the fund information that I mentioned?
