Q&A: London L/S + event-driven analyst
Hey guys, haven't been on here for a while, but I'm currently waiting a few weeks to start my next gig and I'm bored. I figured I'd try to give back a little, especially because I know there are people from London on here, and the amount of info available on London HFs hasn't been great historically. Quick background: School: Very 'target', did an IBD summer internship IBD: Call it a lower Tier 1 BB (i.e. not GS/MS/JPM), did M&A for 3 years in London HF 1: Classic concentrated fundamental equity L/S, multi-billion AUM - strategy/style-wise, think Tiger Cubs, Greenlight, etc. Worked for 3 years as a generalist analyst covering US + Europe. Managed a small sub-book in my last year in a kind-of junior PM / senior analyst-type role. HF2: Moving to an event-driven fund where I will remain a sector generalist; interviewed at a lot of places incl. single-manager L/S, multi-manager L/S, event-driven and macro. Happy to answer questions on most topics: recruiting from sellside, recruiting from buyside, day-to-day, career, stock analysis, portfolio construction, my research process, HF strategies, etc. Won't go into lots of detail about things like comp, just because there are so many funds out there and I really don't have that many data points.
