Iskaral Pust Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 My boss, the president of our firm, wants me to run a spin-off investment business with him for a handful (initially) of billionaires, starting with our own CIO. I developed a plan for the venture last year, and the initial clients want to get started. The idea has some appeal but I think it’s bad career timing for me to go down a specific, narrow rabbit hole like this could easily be. The financial upside for me is potentially much larger, with high risk, although the downside of headaches and insufficient infrastructure is also potentially much larger and with greater likelihood. I need to make a decision quite soon. I’d prefer to do it as a part-time project but I’m seen as the guy to fully own and lead it. Aside from that, I’m still transitioning from my old role as a business unit leader for clients back toward a more investment-content role. But, as expected, it’s difficult to really be disciplined and extract myself from the client situations. My team is trying to step up to take more ownership and free up my time but not enough progress there yet. I think I’ll have a new senior alternate for me, which could really help me not have to get involved when anything turns complicated. It’s nice to have options but difficult to juggle them. Mlle.
