Moving to NYC - Neighborhood HelpSingle 25/26 year male old moving to NYC to do PE in Midtown. I'll be working in the 50s between 3rd and 5th and plan on riding the subway to work. Assuming money is not an issue, what neighborhood suggestions would you give to me? I have been focusing my efforts on Gramercy, Flatiron and NoMad.... 1 year 2 weeks
Atlas Holdings (CT)Nothing on the forum about these guys. Based in Greenwich, they have a $900 million fund and are interchangeably referred to as "distressed PE firm" and "collection of companies." They also have a unique program where they hire "field analysts" with 0-1 years of non-banking experience to work for a... 1 year 3 months
Incline Equity and PNC RiverArchAnyone have insight into these two funds that used to comprise PNC Equity Partners? I know the old PNC Equity used to be a big player in the MM manufacturing and distribution space, but how are these two doing?

Why do accounting firms even have corporate finance arms in the first place? Is it simply to make more revenue? I don't see many investment banks who... 4 years 9 months
How much do I need to my name to buy a nice car?I think I need the Suze Orman show for this. I have no concept of how much it takes to buy a nice car. Assume I have to make the insurance payments and everything. I currently have a car that may be worth 13 or 14k. I'm not married and my main expense is Apt rent which comes out to about... 5 years 1 month

The MM banks would probably be more open to taking someone 3.5 years out of college than a BB, but you need to start applying now... 1 month 6 days

Their public equity fund is focused purely on biotech and I can't speak to how they have performed, but this fund is bigger than their private equity fund. The private equity... 1 month 1 week

US Advisors and FT Partners are probably the least well known, but they have both placed people into solid PE funds. FT Partners has sent multiple analysts to FTV Capital, which has a $700MM fund. You'll get looks from a... 1 month 2 weeks

It is absolutely not a problem to tell a HH you're interested in HC. There are not large HC-specific PE funds, but almost all your big guys will invest in HC,... 1 month 3 weeks

I used this analogy in a thread a few years ago and I'll do it again: if you want to go to the NFL, should you play D3 football or D1 basketball? I used to recruit for the MM IB where I worked and I'd much rather hire a lateral who... 1 month 3 weeks
Medical degree is absolutely not necessary. MDs...Medical degree is absolutely not necessary. MDs and PHDs are the exception in PE, not the rule. The majority of PE firms in HC are going to be focusing on services rather than biotech because the biotechs aren't profitable businesses so they can't be leveraged. For services, a medical degree is... 2 months 3 days

The bank is one of the hottest on the street, and as dealflow improves, so will analyst experiences. They don't have a ton of alums in PE, but I noticed a couple notables in Welsh Carson and Castle Harlan. It's certainly not going to give you... 2 months 3 weeks

They seem to have a lot of ex-analysts at firms in Texas and you'll also see some in Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte and Florida.
