I'm currently in a really shitty group at a Middle Market IBank. Not in New York, New York hours and shitty compensation...
Needless to say I'm interviewing and looking for PE or a lateral for my second year to a BB. In my opinion my top opportunity now is an interview for an emerging markets Private Equity fund in a few weeks that specializes in real estate. They have around $1BN completely levered to invest and can use the money for distressed assets, buy property for development or to purchase existing asset portfolios. From my first rounds they seem like really smart and interesting guys, all of whom graduated from top schools. The questions have been very basic up until now and I'm confident that I can handle any technical questions given that I'm working in Lev Fin right now and modeling every day.
I basically have two questions about the second round:
What kind of questions can I expect from people higher up in their Fund?
How technical do RE PE questions get? What should I expect as far as building a model/analyzing a potential investment as part of a question there?
Finally with the choice of BB Lev Fin, BB LATAM DCM and this emerging market fund, what would fellow monkeys choose? Personally I think this PE opportunity is the best considering how miserable I have been in my group and the more interesting story I expect to have once I end up applying to B Schools. (It also helps that the fund is LATAM and I love latinas) Thanks in advance for the advice.
