A previous discussion on similar topic is here: //www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/ifc-exit-opps
Specifically, assuming the track of IFC -> MBA -> private sector PE (think/TPG/Carlyle), how would the IFC investment analyst experience be rated by the recruiter at private sector megafund? How competitive would a IFC Investment Analyst graduate be compared to other when applying for mega PE funds?
Some discussion in previous posts in this community brought up a few points:
1. IFC is not just doing equity investment; a lot of what they do is loan/structured finance
2. IFC has incredibly good hours compared to BB IBD/mega PE funds (not sure how true this is at the junior level, but just let's assume it to be the case)
