Q&A: I'm a London-based Distressed Debt Analyst
I did 1 year at one of the top restructuring shops (BX, HL, Moelis etc) and then moved on to a credit fund. I've been here for 1.5 years and love every minute of it. We've historically focused on the distressed/special sits (control and non-control) space but given the drought of opportunities (in our opinion, some funds would disagree) out there we've expanded our investment mandate and now also look at performing HY/leveraged loans.
I remember when I was still in IB I found it hard to get info on how buyside recruiting/buyside life works in London as most of the info on the internet is American-centric.
If you have any questions about restructuring, credit investing, recruiting etc. feel free to shoot them my way.
