Default High Finance Thread

Starting this thread to get the ball rolling on discussions about front office financial careers in sg. This includes ib/m&a, private equity, hedge funds, vc, long-only am, trading, research etc.

Given the limited number of seats and hence people in this space, there is a dearth of information on pay, firms, and career progression.

Personally, I've worked at various firms on the buyside in private equity and hedge funds. Happy to field questions from the community if any.

Depends on seniority. Entry level should be high-single digits, only slight discount to IB but lower bonus.

How about roles in corporate banking? Structured Finance/ commodity finance, FI or NBFI, are they not considered as FO position too or less appealing in the market?

Any specific areas of high finance that you aim to break into? Generally, these areas include Investment Banking/Capital Markets, Private Equity, Hedge Fund, Equity Research or Sales & Trading/Global Markets.
