PE IR "growing"?
Have been reading up on some past discussions about PE IR (in house or otherwise) and IR for stuff like HF due to personal interest in going into that field, and there is a repeated point that the space is "growing". Anyone can clarify what they mean? Is it just that more people want to go into it (since its usually small teams/niche space)? Or as in PE firms are spending more resources/giving more comp for these roles? I also know that typically, deal > fundraising/IR type work in prestige/precedence/resources, how does this factor into this as well? Also, any numbers to show this growth or who you are hearing this from (just peers in the space, or like are there stats from these companies)?If anyone could give more details would be helpful!
