Jumping into PE in New York or LondonIB
I just entering my second year analyst level at a BB Investment bank in London and looking to jump into PE either after my second year or in my third year. I would like to know the recruiting procedures at both London and New York for big PE shops like Blackstone, KKR etc etc.
I know in the U.S, things are really structured, it is usually two year as an analyst at an IB then PE. However, I am not sure how does PE recruitment works in Europe, esp in London, my feeling is that it is less structured and I can jump to big PE shops any time between my second year and third year and maybe even when I am an associated, correct me if I am wrong.
Would really love to know the recruitment procedures at big PE shops in both London and New York. I come from a top target school in the UK with a masters and I will have worked at a top tier BB investment bank's IBD for two years next year. What are my chances? Thanks alot people
