Very limited in Sub-Saharan Africa. There are some big funds such as Helios, Emerging Capital Partners, and breakaways from Carlyle, KKR etc. Have tried this route myself (with substantial African experience) but the offices are primarily in Europe (or on the continent) and hard to gain traction.

Thanks for the detailed response!!

More GE and less PE (LBO). You can likely break in with: 1) Non IB background but at least MBB 2) Some ties and knowledge to market (grew up in Brazil, know Vietnamese, family connected in Thailand)

I have always wanted to move to San Antonio, TX (4hrs away from where I live). I told my employer because they also have offices there and they decided they would transfer me because they don't want to loose me. Yet San Anronio is a higher cost of living and they want to move me with the same pay! I decided to stay so I can move but, I need a Technology job in San Antonio. My department has had crazy turn over. Everyone except me and my supervisor are (less than 1 month in).

Currently make 75k in a low cost of living area as a government employee. Big 4 tax background with 5 years experience. Currently working in regulation. I have an opportunity to move back into tax but the catch is it’s in San Francisco. Offer is 130k with a target 10% bonus and 5% pension contribution. Based on my pay and what my spouse could make in SF the pay differential would be a slight decrease based on COL. I’m not seeing a bright future in my government career due to continual budget...
