    How much more would I be likely get than 44K in IB? Or anywhere else for that matter.

    ^This job I have an offer for and it's only 37.5 hours a week.

    Also does asset management pay same as IB initially? (I know the real money comes after years and years of strife).......BUT I want to work for a few years, buy a house/flat in london then go travelling for a while living off the rent before returning to really do something with my life. For this I'd be willing to trade 100 hour weeks for a while.


    Thanks guys.

    IB at a top bank is GBP45k base + bonus + sign on.

    37.5h on paper =/= 37.5h at work btw. I once signed a contract that stated working hours of 40h per week. I ended up working 80-90 hours constantly. Needless to say it was an investment bank.

    Asset Management pays less in general, although top places will pay the same base as investment banks do. However, bonus will be lower, so all-in you will earn a little less. But who gives a **** if you earn 5k or 10k less in your first two years. This is only a small fraction of your overall career.

    Btw, I like your plan, hopefully it is achievable for you.

    Naive in the extreme.
