FIG Exit Opps for PE recruiting?

Hi all,

I recently started at a Middle Market bank working in the FIG group, working on Depositories to be specific. I am interested in recruiting for PE but I know FIG exit opps are very limited as the valuation and modeling is completely different. I would assume that lateraling over to a different group/bank would increase my odds as the valuation would be similar to standard EBITDA based valuation. I think that being in this group will make me a less desirable candidate compared to a TMT or Tech Analyst. What would set me up to have a successful recruiting experience? Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
