isn’t PE supposed to be the exit opp? lmao i’d imagine after you break into that you can do pretty much whatever you want. my guess is that you go back to banking, start your own fund, or go to some corporate job to work way less hours

HF

I've seen HF a few times on FB, but can't seem to understand why... How does experience in running transactions in private equity help with HF recruiting (assuming no contacts pulling for you in the hedge fund)? Of course there are should you could leverage but I'm sure there are other better feeders into HFs

A lot of HFs spend more time in private markets than you might assume. But more generally, PE teaches you to think like an investor, focus on what’s important, and adequately quantify and price risk (all of which banking does a poor job of). Scout LinkedIn, you’ll see that most top HFs are full of ex-buyout folks and there are plenty of reasons why.

How do they spend time in private markets? Ipo a business?

^huh? We do buyouts, growth equity, VC, private debt, distressed, and public equity / credit
