Some of the most interesting work in asset management. You are on the forefront of trends and get to experience first-hand how the industry manages money. You can get exposure to everyone from hedge funds, asset managers, pensions. A very broad view, with lots of large, great clients. You are not just dealing with a product, many times you are selling and discussing new ideas. Some of which are disruptive (which are interesting). Lots of models, data, and analytics work.
The index and the analytics businesses are run very separately. Some of the management is fairly aloof and shortsighted, managing shareholder communications vs. focusing on core operations to build better products to improve the share price.
Advice to Management
Get out of your office. Get off the phone. Walk the floor. Understand the business better.
