Real Estate Credit to HF Opportunities

I am currently a real estate credit analyst (ignore title) at a major shop (BX, Oaktree, Ares, Starwood, etc) and have always been interested in possible hedge fund opportunities. Is this a realistic option/what would comp look like. As of now I'm making close to 200k all in.

If by HF opportunities you're referring to general corporate L/S equity/credit, I'd imagine it'd be a steep uphill battle. I've never seen anyone make that kind of move. If you're referring to RE asset / CMBS / REITs investing at a hedge fund that does that kind of stuff, that seems much more likely

He could be like a Analyst level __4_ or something. I am level 1 at my company and looking at 70-100k depending on our bonus. So if he stayed there for a few years and didn't change his title they may just be giving him pay raises.
