I'm currently interviewing with BMO Sponsor Finance for an Analyst role and would probably get brought in as a 2nd year. I've spoken with contacts at Golub and Ares and they said BMO has a solid MM group but didn't have much detail. Wondering if anyone has additional detail or any idea of comp? I'm currently in Broadly Syndicated Loan group in a Portfolio Analyst (3rd year) role trying to make the jump to the credit side.

Bump? Can't find anything on these guys on the site.

It's a good group, very active overall. The team is split between Chicago and Minneapolis. Originate and execute deals with mostly lower MM sponsors. Deals are typically <50mm EBITDA. They usually do deals without lev fin being involved unless they are of the larger syndicated variety.

Curious for detail on this as well, as I'm trying to learn the landscape of direct lending. Does BMO sponsor finance compete for deals against the likes of Golub, Ares, etc.?
Do they compete for the same talent? Or do people typically start at BMO and then move to a fund?
Any color at all is very appreciated.
