Commercial Lending to REPE? Advice Needed
I graduated 3 years ago with a BS degree in Finance, good GPA at a pretty good school and started working in a Commercial Banking Leadership Program. I then worked as a commercial credit Analyst for about 18 months before getting promoted to a portfolio manager working directly under a CRE lender.
The thing is, I am extremely bored. I like Commercial Real Estate, I love underwriting the deals, but commercial lending is boring and I have ZERO desire to become a CRE lender or any role involving sales/production. I'm analytical and detail-oriented, more of a "do my own thing" type of person and intrinsically motivated. Very organized and routine oriented. Bit of a health & fitness nut. Think Type A personality but more introverted/inquisitive.
My parents did not finish college and do not have white collar jobs. I'm not from the greatest town so I've never really had anyone help guide me in the right direction in regards to career choices. I thought majoring in Finance was a good idea but I was never educated enough to learn about the various career paths after school. All I knew is that I did not want to work 80+ hours in Investment Banking.
What kind of career in CRE would I be best suited for? Asset Management? Development? Acquisitions?
Looking forward to hearing different opinions. Feel free to ask any questions.
