In terms of prestige/exits: Infra > Tac Opps > Real Estate (group dependent) > Credit > Secondaries

 

I will say though, for all of you college kids, prestige is not going to make you happy in life I promise. If you're only going to a group for prestige and not because you're a cultural fit and actually interested, then I am sorry to say you're going to hate your years and will probably burnout quickly

This list is not correct
PE > RE (group matters for exits) > credit > infra > secondaries (group matters) > tac opps

The firm has a strategic group, that found Patria , GSO , etc. small team, they underwrite a lot of diff thesis and then assign to diff business units

Doesn’t BTO exit really strongly or is that just legacy? Always thought they did better than credit but could be wrong.

 

RE (group matters for exits)

how does bx separate its re groups? acq, am, cap markets, debt/equity, core, opportunistic?

The real question is: What do you like?

For instance, I fucking hate real estate, I left a firm after two months because although they said they analyzed and invested in diversified assets, most of it turned out to be basically different sectors within real estate.

So if hypothetically BX RE was the most prestigious group. Fuck it, I wouldn't care. What's the point of prestige if you don't even enjoy reading a two pager? Let alone hundreds of pages of docs outlining every little detail of something you abhor.

Past exits are only realized data points of what people landed and not representative of for what they got interviews. If you get an interview, that is all that matters. It's up to you to land your exit. As long as it is a reputable group and it is something you truly enjoy, you can talk about it in depth in interviews. And that is how you impress and land something.

A depressed kid in the most prestigious group who hates his work will never land something he truly wants.
