If investment team offer, the long term comp trajectory will blow consulting out of the water

You are 30 so the right way is to look at it from a 20-30 year horizon, like building a DCF or a longer term investment.

Short term cashflow might be less with HCOL but what would be the longer term scenarios? Best , expected, worst cases for both trajectories?

P.S. KKR and Caryle heads are Asian so I think you would do well.

P.S.2 - I am Asian so I know you can work 80 hours a week.

Good Luck.

Is this for ops or investment team? Trajectory is widely different depending on which. I’d say go for it if it’s investment but not if it’s ops.

Not a great way to evaluate. You will make significantly more in PE over the medium / long run. The question should be do you want to do PE work or not

Growth will be much faster, if you can survive.

EY making 300k (are you an M at Parthenon?) is impressive, and moving to an MF doubly so — congrats!

Other question is do you want the MF lifestyle for the same comp and are you willing to put in the hours to stay long term

But a lot of PE people ended up in corp dev tbh, everyone one knows that’s PE partners make 100M+, but how many of PE asc make it to the top???

MF associates have better exit ops than T2 consultants tho. Go from there to a chill AM seat at a LO, or anything you want tbh

What do you think cutoffs for fund size categories in VC are? Obviously it’s much smaller asset class than PE, but would something like this make sense:

<50M: microfund
<100M: Seed Fund
<500M: Early Stage (A&B) “Midcap”
<2B: Growth (C+) “Late Stage”
2B+: “Megafund”

Funds in larger categories can do smaller deals, but larger check sizes make more sense for them.
