UBS Actual Buyside Exits 2024 Post-Integration

Read some comments earlier on UBS exits where there was a lot of disagreement, so making this post. What are the actual buy-side exits look like for the firm based on the group? I know LevFin/Sponsors when combined was viewed as a strong group, and would like to know where the AN1s or AN2s are going there similarly for the other groups UBS has traditionally been viewed as strong like GIG and TMT. If you only have data points on the weaker coverage groups, that would be helpful as well. Just looking to aggregate opinions to get a sense of what to do as an incoming 2025 summer analyst.


Can you define strong? I was asking more to those at the firm: since I assume they know where their 2nd-year analysts are going. Additionally, I understand LevFin/Sponsors is historically the best for exits, but how will exits look for each now that they split? Do you expect exits to be roughly the same as before or will they be materially different?

Strong is in terms of deal flow. Levfin should have as strong if not stronger exit going forward. Not sure about Financial sponsor group.


MM/UMM exits mostly with some example UMM names being L Catterton, THL, Audax, Lindsay Goldberg, Stonepeak, and HIG

Edit: to clarify these were exits before integration, not for the current AN2s.

Edit 2: Why is this getting monkey shit thrown at it? These are all exits you'll find if you just look up exits from LinkedIn... just examples of names of previous UBS M&A exits in the past few years(all these firms currently have a PE associate who did their IB analyst stint at UBS M&A as per Linkeldn).
