IB VP or Associate to PE -- is this a thing?
I keep reading about the "normal" path to PE, which seems to be 2 years as an IB analyst (with super early PE recruiting), and then PE. But what about for those who want to give IB a fair shot, as in doing it for multiple years? Is this doable? To make the move from IB to PE as either an IB associate or VP? Or are PE shops only interested in IB analysts and MBAs?
Thanks for input.
