Exit Paths - MM Opportunistic Credit Associate

What sort of exit opps exist for an associate at a top decile, $5bn aum fund?

In banking, I covered levfin & rx in a specialized industry (EB), but went to a generalist mezzanine fund recently. As I think about what could be the ultimate next steps, I was wondering what other people may have seen or done in their careers. Here are some options I have thought about below:

Banking: Going back to banking in my former industry group, special sits, or leveraged finance group

HF: special sits / distressed / opportunistic credit fund

PE/PC: I doubt I'd want to do buyout, but perhaps a more aggressive credit fund or to an industry fund similar that I use to cover
