Only --> Asset Management Comp + Income Progression

Hey Guys,

I'm a second year analyst in Asset Management. I wanted to share a page designated only for people who are currently in or were in Asset Management at some point to share their compensation history for the sake of learning more about what market pay is in various markets as well as how your compensation has changed over the years in this role.

I feel like many comp trackers vary way too much in roles, so I wanted to really narrow it down only to asset management personnel.

This would really benefit us when negotiating future bumps in pay in the future. For starters here is where I'm at.

Current Position: Analyst
Firm Type: Private Equity (other choices --> REIT, Family Office, etc.)
Market: National

Office Location: West Coast

Fund Size: $10B+ AUM

Typical Hours per week: 40 - 50 hrs

Comp:
Year 1 Analyst:
- Salary: $65k
- Bonus: 5% - 10%
Year 2 Analyst:
- Salary $75k
- Bonus: 10% - 20%

Lastly, anyone know what asset management personnel make at the VP, Director, or other top seniority level?

We just want Asset Management only, the comp from other roles aren't what this thread should lead readers to.

Hopefully this ends up being a one stop shop for Asset Management people.
