How did you become a PM?Subscribe
Just curious about the mechanics behind how some of the guys/gals on the forum got to managing a book/carve-out and/or assumed a risk taking position with managing equities or credit.
-Did you step in to fill someone's shoes?
-Did your boss offer you up the role from being an analyst?
-Did you jump shop and start out managing a book as a fresh PM?
Also, would be curious to hear thoughts regarding your confidence level prior to managing your first book, how many years you spent at an analyst level before PM, any mentoring you may have had en route to becoming a PM, and how you became comfortable with running a portfolio.
