Does anyone have any idea how hard it would be to lateral to a top-tier non-infrastructure HF? If it would be hard to move now, would it substantially help to go to business school first?

Thanks in advance for the help!

I'm sure it's possible - there are publicly traded infra companies but I'm sure the deep modelling experience would be seen as valuable in other strategies. However I am curious why you want to give public markets a shot, especially if you have loved your experience?

My personal $0.02 is stay where you have a competitivet advantage - the equity l/s / value investing space is crowded and you are right that you will have acquired a very specific skillset to infrastructure, which is where you have the competitive advantage - i have been in equities for 6 years for example and there is no way i could move to infrastructure at this stage. I am sure it can be done, but my personal advice is stay where you have the competitive advantage, especially given your comment you love what you do. Just my 2 cents, dont know if others think any differently.

Energy, Utilities, Munis etc. are industries where your skills fit.. such funds may work. However, you need to have a good grasp of capital markets; consider looking through Dastidar's investments book for a quick read, as others have said elsewhere in the forums.
