LO/ HF compensation in Australia

Subscribe

I am currently interviewing with a long only, fund manager in Australia.
It is a small team but they are growing quickly.
I would be coming in as an analyst (1-2 years previous experience) with some CFAs.

What kind of compensation ranges should I expect for these kind of roles in Australia?

It depends.

AUM?

Analysts/PMs?

Performance?

What is your b/g. Did you come from IB or ER?

Australia doesn't pay as high as US so need to lower expectations. Bonus at certain shops are very generous.

I mean its hard to say. There are shops that will pay anywhere from 100k to 1MM+ for analysts. A lot of it will be driven by performance and how it will be divided. Is your previous experience on sell-side ER? I'm not sure what 'buy-side ER' means. If former, I wouldn't expect too much. Also the philosophy of the fund will matter a lot.

Also how can you be sure if performance is strong without exact numbers? I would take everything funds tell you with a high level of doubt.
