What happens after 30?
It seems like theoften be very short, with most analyst starting in their early/mid-20s and then leaving to start their own fund or making PM at a multimanager after 5-10 years of experience.
That said, what happens to the people who can't start their own fund/make PM? I have noticed through friends/linkedin there are more 30+ year old analysts (or analysts with fancy titles) who are still at single managers, pitching ideas, and have the same role as the 25 year old newbies except with more experience. Is this a viable career path (either based on compensation or skills learned)?
