Going from REPE to Lifeco
Hi! I am a first year analyst at doing acquisitions at a well-regarded REPE firm and I'm looking to see what kind of options there are for someone in my shoes to move to a lifeco. While I find the work interesting and I'm learning a lot, I've come to the realization that the trade off between the comp and the lifestyle that the job demands just isn't worth it to me. So my question is: are there acquisition roles at lifecos for people with my level of experience (1.5 years when I'd be looking to make the jump)? And if so, what would be the best way to find, apply for, and ultimately get one of these jobs? Any insight would be greatly appreciated and if there's anyone out there who has made such a transition, I'd love to talk to you about it!
