Today we continue the conversation with our investment industry veteran, who began telling us the story of investment banking to the buy side. In Part 2 here, we’ll talk about what it’s like to work at a mutual fund vs. hedge fund. Working at a mutual fund vs. hedge fund has a lot of similarities on the surface. After all, it’s all about investing!
However, as we dig deeper into the comparison, we’ll see that there’s are significant differences in the lifestyle, nature of work, compensation structure, and career trajectory. Some of the answers might surprise you.
Without further ado, let’s get right down to it and continue our conversation. If you haven’t read the first half of the conversation, I recommend you start with Part 1 here.
