A head-hunter recently reached out to me about an Investment Analyst role within the Income Research team (infrastructure coverage) in one of the larger AM funds.
He tells me that the base is "up to £100k" and the bonus is "minimum of 100%, with potential up to 250%)". This role is based in the UK, but NOT in London.
Is it just me or is this excessively high? Is he pulling my leg here or is that bonus realistic?
For background, I work in Infra / Energy Private Equity and this is my first encounter with Public Equities so I really don't know much about the comp, but given that I am only at the Junior Associate level and not even in the right sector, I feel like this isn't right?
