What kind of deal evaluation do you actually do in a FoF?

From my understanding selecting a fund manager at the moment is extremely qualitative (this would be for their Primary FOFs) and they are trying to make the selection process more quantitative by performing analysis on past transactions, current industry trends, etc. . Their Co-investment fund is where you would see the more traditional LBO /financial modeling analysis.

Can you only apply to the Google APMM program if there is a position available at your home country’s office? Or can you apply anywhere? It says there is no visa sponsorship so I assume it’s the former but wanted to check. The program looks great. Fits my credentials and long-term goals. However, I’ve never seen an opening for the position at my home country’s office. Any APMM program members who faced the same issue? How did you overcome this? Happy to chat here or over DM.Google

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
