The biggest hurdle would probably be the lack of experience combined with your age (given that you have worked FT for quite a while already)

1. I'd recommend buy-side equity research/investment. IB/PE/HF would be quite a stretch imo given their stringent pedigree requirements and the stiff competition from BB bankers or PE/Asset Management Investment Professionals.

You'd probably have to go for more junior roles in smaller firms (local boutique investment firms/family offices)

2. Pass CFA Level 2. Beef up your technical skills (3-statement financial modeling, investment due diligence, investment thesis formation). Show interest in the industry (pick a few sectors of interest such as Healthcare/Energy and know them inside out).

3. Most probably have to take a significant cut for the roles mentioned in point 1, but it depends. Can go to mycareersfuture for examples of some of these roles and their corresponding salary range.

Does anybody have information about the comp for local bank IB (DBS, OCBC, UOB)?
Particularly at the analyst and associate levels.

Your profile sounds a hell lot like mine. Was a chem teacher and completed the CFA. Left the moment my bond ended and somehow bumbled my way into buyside

1. Your prospects are worse than a fresh grad honestly. Many grad programs aren't even open to you. You'll need a fair amount of luck and networking to get yourself somewhere simply because teaching has literally no tangible skills that can be transferred.

2. Financial modelling and writing pitches. You will be asked to prepare a pitch for interview or you might want to send one out along with your CV.

3. Absolutely yes. I had a huge pay cut myself and I wasn't at 100k yet. You're looking at going back to fresh grad levels so you need to think very carefully if this is for you.

Do you even know what you are talking aboutÖ PE and HF are buyside roles.

Hey, you'll need to further narrow down into scope (FO/MO/BO) and the tier of the bank (BB, boutique, local)

For BBs & some other MMs, IB & S&T pre 2021 (there was recently a raise) both pay fresh grads a base salary of 9.5-10k/mth, with bonus ranging quite widely. This much I can personally confirm from my own experience, though there will be a raise to somewhere around 11-12k/mth for 2022 fresh grads & summer interns.

Heard stories of IBD bonuses hitting up to 100-120% of base for top buckets at stronger banks, but the norm is likely slightly below, maybe 80%? S&T bonuses tend to be a bit lower on average, given that they work 60-70% of IBD hours, have heard stories of 40-60% base being the norm. But these bonus stories are just based on hearsay, I haven't received my first bonus yet. Still, yearly all-in compensation (pre-raise) should have been safely about 200k++ for IBD, and 160k++ in S&T.

In 5 years, associates/AVPs should expect to more or less have doubled their total comp, but variance will be a bit high. For example, a good trader could possibly have already been made VP and be managing 10++m of PnL yearly, while many others could be getting mediocre bonuses due to poor performance, meaning they are likely to leave/be culled soon. Can't give meaningful figures here, as simple average figures are vulnerable to survivorship bias.

Don't know how much AM pays in Singapore
