In this business it isn't a lot. I can name a handful of shops here in Chicago that run 4-5 Billion with only a couple PMs

So how do you get a job at a mutual fund instead?

I personally don't want one, but FD is correct. You go to U of Chicago, Wharton, MIT, NYU, etc and sign up with Fidelity on career day

Seriously though, it's a different business entirely. I like my job because I get to know the people behind the portfolios (sometimes at least) . I get to have more influence than I would at a fund. I also get to learn about, and interact with all different types of securites instead of specializing on just one.

Re: Another round of Guess The Salary!!!

It is also a job market where supply (pool of applicants) always exceeds demand (open positions). Easy to get lost in the millions of eager wannabe analysts.

A "C" average at Wharton will get you a job at a mutual fund, while and "A" average at a normal business school won't..................

When I got accepted to the MBA school at Vanderbilt, the guy told me I would never have to LOOK for a job........... Of course, when I found out how much it cost, I couldn't afford it anyway............. :P
