I wanted to get an impression on the best restructuring experience in London in terms of skill building and exit opps.
I assume that specialist programs like Evercore/HL/RS prep analyst better for distressed roles than generalist places like PJT/Laz/Moelis, even though PJT is top notch in RX.
Another thing that caught my attention after a quick linkedin search is that the London offices of Oaktree and other loan to own / distressed for control places hire mostly from GS/MS and not candidates from restructuring backgrounds. Is this simply a statistical phenomenon since the analyst classes at these BB are larger or do GS/MS place better at a distressed PE than a RX guy from HL/Evercore?
Appreciate any replies!
