To be eligible for top-level positions, you’ll need five to 10 years of experience within an asset management environment (ideally with a compliance focus). Many hedge fund managers prefer to hire compliance professionals with law degrees. Some employers also seek executive-level candidates with regulatory experience at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Securities & Exchange Commission, or other regulatory bodies. Analysts must have prior experience (internship, co-op, work) within an asset management environment.
