At the junior level, I can't see what would prevent you from moving from a top-tier infra fund to a mega fund PE given how similar the skill set is. I tend to think that, if you have been properly trained, you are probably better armed than most of your peers in PE as you (should) have a much deeper understanding of debt products... something critical when it comes to financing and structuring deals.

To make the move to a HF happen, be proactive, contact people working in the space and also liaise with specialised headhunting firms. You should try Options Group as they are pretty well connected in the HF world.

For the move to large PEHs, try to identify who are the key HH firms and get in touch with them.

Hope this helps!
