Long-term career future in Equity AM
I'm an assistant PM (~8 years exp) at a small/mid-sized asset manager, long-only mid/large-cap.
I'm early 30s, I really enjoy my job, but I can't help worrying about the long-term future for equity. I think I saw another thread with a similar topic so apologies for some duplication.
I can imagine the majority of users will be younger and looking to get into the sector (as I was many years ago using these forums), but would be really interesting to hear from some more experienced users how they're thinking about this.
I worry that I like my job, earn a good salary, but that in 5-10 years it might look a lot worse and suddenly I've got a niche skill set (being in a smaller team, as asst PM, not a lot of technical work required i.e. modelling that could be used elsewhere although appreciate always able to learn/improve on this) and wouldn't be able to command anything like the comp I do now in a job that I'd actually enjoy.
