Portfolio Operations Group--DFW area

Needing PE funds in DFW area with a portfolio operations group. Wife looking to leave management consulting and we think this would be a perfect fit. 

Open to remote opportunities as well. 

Would seriously appreciate getting any help the networking ball rolling

 

Based on the WSO Dataset, transitioning from management consulting to a portfolio operations group within a private equity fund is a viable path. In the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area, there are several prominent PE funds that could potentially have portfolio operations groups. While the specific details about which funds have dedicated portfolio operations teams aren't listed, firms like Kainos and Trive are notable mentions in the Dallas area and could be starting points for your research.

For your wife's transition, networking will be crucial. She might consider connecting with professionals in these firms via LinkedIn or attending industry conferences and events in the DFW area. Additionally, engaging on platforms like Wall Street Oasis to connect with others who have made similar transitions could provide valuable insights and potential leads.

If open to remote opportunities, she should also look into larger, well-established PE firms that might offer more flexibility in terms of remote work. Firms like KKR and Blackstone have operations teams and have been known to hire consultants, though these are not specifically based in the DFW area.

Starting the networking ball rolling can begin with reaching out to alumni from her consulting firm who have moved into PE, or using any existing contacts within the industry. Attending local finance and investment events or joining relevant online forums and groups can also expand her network effectively.
