Anyone make jump from REPE to RE Debt Fund?

I recently made the jump from AM associate in REPE to underwriter at a RE debt fund. I'm wondering if anyone else has done similar and if so, do you have any thoughts you're willing to share on different skills or ways of thinking that are necessary to thrive in each role? Probably more fitting for a PM, but just wanted to put out a feeler. I think it's much more typical to make the reverse of this transition, which makes much more sense to me from the perspective of it being a more natural transition. I'm generalizing here, but I think debt underwriting is typically more conservative than REPE underwriting and I think it makes more sense to go from conservative to aggressive rather than the opposite which is what I'm now doing.
