Maybe a stupid question but I sometimes see investment bankers, probably 3 years out of school, don't seem to come from money, and their exit opp is at like VC as an "investor"

Is this just a title? They can't already have thaaat much $ can they?

Investor is now a common Associate / Senior Associate-level title at VC shops. It is increasingly common for those below Principal / Partner to use the generic “investor” title.

A lot of junior folks in VC also do sourcing, so they change their title to “Investor” to try and hide the fact that they’re bottom of the totem pole so founders are more likely to speak with them

Separately, there is an increasing number of independent / search fund / independent sponsors (not to mention angel and “pre-angel” (wtf that means)) in the marketplace with many using the generic “investor” moniker. . . Similar to how some one man shops list their title as Managing Director. The difference becomes apparent when you start asking questions such as fund size, number of funds raised, exits, etc.

Also similar to how some one man start-up founders note their title as “CEO”.

What do people "who come from money" look like? And what about the alternative?

Well, also I know some of these people, just haven't kept in touch so I feel weird asking about their title cuz it sounds accusatory

Isn’t that like “consultant”? And as we know, there are many types and flavors, from one man bands to huge firms to even strategy vs tech vs big 4 and everything else in between

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting.

I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.

How important are appearances in PE at the associate level?

Im naturally kind of cheap, but not opposed to spending money if it feels like it’s important.

Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
