    Is the work similar to market making for the asset management firm's clients or do the traders trade securities for the bank (i.e. Execution trading like at a hedge fund)?

    Also, is the compensation at these firms for traders similar to back office compensation or somewhere between front office equity research analysts and the back office?

    I believe they trade. A trader usually tends to trade.

    Trade, mostly to execute in equity heavy strategies but a more risk management/more pnl driven role within a fixed income strategy.

    Comp will vary based on the type of fund (HF v mutual/long only) and size of the fund.
