Cannot speak about recruiting process but I've heard they've lost some respect on the street after bad performance from GFC up until 2020. 

 
Funniest

Would you take an offer from MSREI over distressed credit at BCM?

MSREI is really good in the UK. They combine investment and asset management into one role so you follow any assets you purchase throughout their life cycle. They mostly do core and core plus stuff. Have heard mixed reviews about one of their MDs but overall it’s an amazing place to be and has great exits if you want to go to a different fund. There’s a VP of BAM who was former MSREI. 
 

No idea about the interview process but I know they do the initial screening the same as any job at MS which is through those dumb “games”. Unsure about a hirevue. Other than that, just know basic RE terms and use this website to learn about other RE internships/off-cycle interviews. I’ve posted one before as well. Not sure about summer interns but I know off-cycles often get return offers. 
 

Would be a great place to start out in the next year or two when things begin to ramp up again. Can only guess on the pay but I believe they follow paybands such as the IB and S&T but I am only guessing.

 

If you’re worried about reputation, don’t be. Everyone knows the place and they know the training you’ll get. Poor fund performance is a reflection on VPs up, not interns. Name is top notch. Know plenty of people who have rotated both internally at MS in IB and debt financing from REI, and also others who moved to different funds.

cons: you work in Canary Wharf and have to be in office 5 days a week. 

 

I heard they couldn't land anyone from a target society (think LSESU BIG/Bristol Banking and Investment Society) so they took on a non-target summer analyst (think Birmingham Investment Club/LSE unconventional trading summit/Blackstone Cap Markets pre forma offer). Rest assured, PBSA markets are looking excellent and exits to BREDS/Apollo/Oaktree (non-convertible)/Stifel Tech M&A/DB Upreach Spring Week/Macquarie (Megafund (pro forma), not MacCap) are achievable.

 

Now you see thats super interesting because I was under the impression this group was fed from [distressed south asian fund name redacted due to prestige] analyst class, mostly from classic IBD feeder MM Tech M&A groups (non-oxbridge UK based top target student who failed his / her summer / Evercore Insight Programme Attendee / Stifel London Last offer). Interesting you say people are doing Private Equity Real Estate (Buyout / even tho asset level 99%) in this top MF shop (BX / KKR / Blackrock GIP - Schrodinger’s ASO comp / Bristol finance-hardo students recognition). Thoughts fellow monkeys and Piper Sandler AC rejects?

Enim animi in qui distinctio adipisci. Et eos aut asperiores aut. Quibusdam ex minima ea id est perferendis. Quia quo expedita delectus qui tempora dolor. Et temporibus autem nihil assumenda. Veritatis ea quibusdam voluptate id hic.
