LONDON experienced Buy side equity analyst comp benchmark
I saw quite a fair bit on this forum about comp for equity analyst roles on the buy-side in the US but not so much in London. Feels to me that the market here is less transparent (speaking also with headhunters, numbers I get can vary a lot). Hence would be curious to have your thoughts/numbers (with role, AuM, performance fees structure to put things in context).
About me: about 10 years of experience as an equity analyst (first in the sell-side for the first two years then in buy-side since), working with a long-only fund focused on European equities (generalist but more on the consumer side), AuM around GPB3bn, no perf fees, normal fees around 1%, fairly small investment team of 5.
-> current base GBP145k + bonus give or take between 50% of base as a min to 150% of base as a max (all in cash and non-deferred)
Is it in line with market? How does that compare with package in large institutional funds (, TRP, JH..): never worked for the big guys so I have no idea where the market is there (I suspect they have more of a salary grid template like in IB contrary to small shops like min).
Thanks in advance!
