Which would you choose? Regional IB vs PE Secondaries vs PE FoF
I've seen a lot of discussion on PE FoF and PE secondaries on this forum these days.
I now have this opportunity to interview with a fairly large FoFs, but am having trouble prioritizing multiple opportunities on hand.
Here’s 3 analyst positions (all in Asia) that are presented to me and I really need your view on which of these gives a more promising long-term career.
The first and the second are almost confirmed, the FoF is still in interview process.
1. Regional IB: The firm is not a global player, but has strong presence in the region (think CIMB, I am international student if you are wondering)
2. PE Secondaries: a fairly large PE secondaries investment firm with top-quartile AUM and global presence(think Adam Partners)
3. A Private Equity FoF: USD ~5B AUM, investment focus mainly in emerging markets
Any comment is welcomed!
P.S. I need to decided by this weekend. Thanks a lot! If you need more details on the firms, I can PM.
Hope this also provides helpful information for other job seekers this year. Job market is really tough these days.
