The typical advancement path is from business analyst/assistant investor relations (IR) manager, to IR manager, and IR director. It’s important to remember that most IR departments at private equity firms are small, so there are fewer opportunities for advancement. Mid-size and large PE firms offer the best advancement prospects. Talented investor relations professionals can also advance to become managing partners. Others move onto work as investor relations managers in the corporate world, or pursue opportunities as financial controllers or chief financial officers with corporations or in the alternative asset management industry.
