IB > PE > HFSubscribe
It seems like IB to PE to HF is a common path for a lot of people. I went to a semi target, then a MM IB in Chicago, and now a LMM PE shop ($500M fund) in the midwest. With this background, do I have a shot at landing in a decent HF in NYC? Or are those roles reserved for the Ivy > BB > MF kids?
To keep this short, I've basically started to realize that the transaction lifestyle is not for me and I want to give hedge funds a try in the next year or so.
Nobody from my IB or PE firm has ever gone to a HF. Do I just reach out to head hunters and tell them that I want to interview for hedge funds? I've come across a lot of PE prep materials but hardly any for HF. Are there any good ones you would recommend?
