Q&A: Career start and progression across IBD // Restructuring // PE special sits
Hi everyone, I have recently joined the platform as a mentor and keen to kick start my tenure with a Q&A session.
Quick background about myself - 3.5 years ofand restructuring experience in and I pivoted to the illiquid asset heavy situations at Apollo. I worked for over 8 yrs investing across industry and asset classes targeting debt and/or equity opportunities in private markets.
About my studies, plain vanilla business with particular depth into fin maths and statistics at a known European university followed by commodity and credit specific master program in London. In between those studies, I had a gap year interning in finance related stints. I figured global markets was my future bread and butter only to get hit by reality in 2008/9, which forced me to shift preferences towards IBD as a career start.
Much of this journey till today has been governed by grasping opportunities that came along my path without losing too much focus on big picture and my goals - which altered slightly throughout the years.. When commencing my bachelor studies, I would have never thought to be moving into finance, and glad of my choice.
I very much look forward to everyone's questions - seriously, I'm happy to answer anything that is important to you!
