Furthermore: - Five positions earned between $300,000 and $499,000: Chief Risk Officer (CRO), Chief Investment Officer (CIO), Director of Research, Director of Sales & Marketing, and Compliance Director.

- Six positions earned between $200,000 and $299,999: Senior Analyst, Chief Financial Officer, Operational Due Diligence, Controller, Client Services and IT.

- Four positions earned between $100,000 and $199,999: Director of Investor Relations, Fund Accountant, Mid Level Analyst and Junior Analyst.
