London PE exit opps - US BB in Europe vs. MBB London
I have an offer from a US( / MS / ) in my European home country, which is a very strong office for the bank (think Paris / Milan / Frankfurt). However, I am also considering a in London. My long-term goal is to pursue a career in PE / a large fund in London.
Normally, I know that the banking route would be a clear winner but I'm not so sure given that the offer is for a European office. I'm guessing that funds place a discount on experience from Europe and headhunters might not be as willing to put you forward in processes. I also suppose it will be a logistical nightmare to recruit for London when you are situated in Europe and have to travel for 10+ interviews per fund while working 80+ hours a week.
Would accepting my BB offer in my home country or pursuing a career with MBB in London best set me up for a career in PE in London?
