Public Finance best verticals for exit opps

Which verticals within PubFin are best for exits or development of transferrable skills to either PE or traditional IB? I was thinking it would probably be P3, Transportation, or Healthcare given that they might have greater exposure to traditional modeling, but I would appreciate some light shed in this regard.

Additionally, what about groups that cover land-secured deals (e.g. California Community Facilities District) with regard to the aforementioned development or career mobility opportunities? Thanks a lot!

Honestly dude if you're in PF you're prob gonna stay in muni's, I've seen some guys do LMM PE but it's not really that common. Most people either pivot to S&T, or go to buy side AM/HF's
