I'm a NYC based mid-career BD professional with experience across sales, marketing and IR. I started my career in institutional consulting and traditional investments before moving over to the HF side of the business. I've been at my current shop for a little over 5 years and mostly cover a Multi-strategy, event driven and Private credit fund. It's been a good run, I helped raise a few billion mostly from Private Clients with some institutional money.
Unfortunately we are a bank owned firm and so my comp was not inline with market comp, I knew that going in, but I'm at the end of my rope and looking to make a move.
I've been looking around for a while but it seems like everyone is hiring junior people. I've learned about several hires that were much more junior to me and ended up making significantly more than me. It's a bummer...
Decided to post here to see if anyone has any advice. I'm not hung up on titles and am happy to roll up my sleeves and do whatever work needs to get done, especially because I feel like if I take one step back title-wise I can take two steps forward with comp and future growth.
It's a frustrating experience and I'm open to any ideas or suggestions on what I should do.
Also interested in any firms that may be hiring or recruiters who could be helpful.
