How hard is it to make the jump from a small-ish AM to a big one?
Landed a job in AM at a small-ish shop ($60bn AUM, ~$5bn in the specific fund I'll be working in). Looks like a really interesting role and a great team but will be taking a fairly substantial pay cut.
If I take it I definitely want to commit to them for a decent amount of time, say 3-5 years at least. However I'd eventually like to make the kind of money only a bigger shop can offer.
Will it be easy to make the switch once I have some experience? Would an MBA probably be required? If so I'm already in my late 20s so might be pushing it.
Will be doing EM fixed income if that helps.
