Hedge Fund Analysts

Advancement Prospects

Hedge fund analysts who provide investment advice that results in strong profits for their firm receive bonuses and/or promotions. At a large firm that has a defined career ladder, an analyst can advance to the position of senior analyst after a few years of experience. Extremely skilled analysts can be promoted to head the research department, and eventually to the top investment job of chief investment officer. Some analysts move on to jobs as investment bankers, or transition to analyst positions with venture capital or private equity funds. Others become financial consultants.
