How much should I ask?
Hello guys. Made a thread like a year ago, asking for help in terms of buyside roles and hours. A year later things ended up working out. So first of all, wanted to thank everyone for their help.
I was offered a junior equity research analyst gig in London for an Asset Manager/Private Bank. My team (PM, Analyst and myself) manages $800m, no particular mandate but very deep fundamentals. The guys I work with come with very strong pedigrees.
Meanwhile, I instead come with zero FT experience. Three internships, one with the current fund. Despite this they offered me a role and asked me to name a price. Assuming there's no bonus (not sure whether they have one), is £60k reasonable? According to this £60k is the most I could expect. I was already advised by someone internally on how much to ask, however the number I heard was slightly below my expectations. So I would like to ask for a bit more (when I say a bit I do mean a bit). Would also appreciate any advice on how to structure the conversation to ensure I don't come across as a greedy pig?
