For those of you who moved from PE to public markets investing, what are they key "regrets" you had, if any?
I'm currently at a PE fund though I don't think I see a long/sustaining career in PE because I think I'm very average in terms of people skills - I don't suck, but I'm not great either. I like the work of investing, so would love to have a career in it...I was just thinking it may be more sustainable for me to move to public investing.
Key things I worry about in switching to public equities is the seeming lack of career stability - I see a lot of linkedin profiles of very qualified people who seem to change funds every 2-3 years, and generally it doesn't seem like there are progressions in responsibility (continue to be analyst, etc.)
I've browsed through a few threads on this forum that talks about the differences in the 2 career paths (public - no interaction with management/not as involved, mark to market, need to jive with PM, etc.). Would just be curious on how other people in similar situations (like investing, but not outstanding in people skill) thought about this.
