I'm an undergraduate in Singapore. Was offered an internship (research and due diligence) at a PE FoF with a considerable global AUM but less so in Asia. The firm plans to expand so I reckon if I perform well my chances of a full-time conversion is rather high. I do not have other internship offers in the bag.
I was wondering if this path would be ideal, if my longer term goal is to be running a fund (as a partner) that does direct investments? Would the traditional IBD - PE path better equip me with the requisite skills and network? Or perhaps the Big 4 Corp Fin pathway would be superior too?
Would appreciate any advice, cheers.
