Keeping this short - I am a bit over five years out of school and have worked as an Analyst at a long only fund and a L/S family office (current role). We are quite tiny, but the family's net worth is well into 9 figures.
I took a cut in pay from my last fund (around 170k all in previously), to help launch about a year ago. (Also small note, I am American but based in Asia running a US portfolio). This past week my boss (theres only a couple of us decided to give me 5mn to start my own PnL into Q4 with another 20m to be seeded throughout the next year.
My questions are:
1. How does one transition from contributing research ideas to running a portfolio and what are your screening strategies, tools for risk analysis and other important things you keep in mind?
2. What sort of fee structure would make sense to negotiate for compensation - in terms of base and bonus component at my level?
