I will be frank that I find the fund management team in my Corp RE PE is boring. We only deal with fund reporting (which we just basically passing property management report to the investors), do fund performance ( which is just change in NAV) and board paper. I feel that my job is purely administrator job. We do modelling, but mainly updating the model with actual numbers. And given that I am in a large corporate, we have so many people doing specialized things, hence the scope of my work is very limited. We also just help to fill in forms from investors and may be sometimes answer interesting investors' qn (that is the only that that make me smile a bit)
I did try to move to the acquisition side, and have been interviewing with few REPE on the acquisition side. Has been 8 months since then and no good offers yet. Lately I did an interview with EY on its new CF team for RE in Singapore. Seems like a decent one and at least I will be exposed to deal and some advisory services. Do you think this is a good move? or a step-back? and can I then go to REPE acquisition side from here?
