Jumping from Buy Side to Sell Side - LevFin vs Private Credit Role
Need some advice on making a career move, I'm currently at a boutique private credit shop for 2 years now, doing very interesting special sits and direct lending deals. However, comp is pretty bad and we just aren't closing any deals at the moment, none of the deals we bring seem to close.
I believe I will have 2 offers on the table soon, so want some advice.
1st opportunity, a leverage finance role in an MM bank.
2nd opportunity, in another boutique private credit shop
Both will give a better compensation vs my current role.
Would it be wise for me to jumprole and gain experience there? I like credit and special situations investing, and would eventually like jump to a private credit/ special situations mega-fund.
