Infrastructure Private Equity Fund to Corporate Private Equity - Moving to corporate PE fund?

Hi, I am a PE associate in a decent infrastructure private equity fund (decent brand name) looking at infrastructure equity investments: toll roads, concession assets, power networks, telco towers and more recently at real estate and public private partnerships (PPP).

How easy would it be for me to move to a corporate private equity fund to focus media, technology, consumer, retail, industrial companies?

I am so bored with the boring infrastructure assets, especially those PPP are killing me and everything is regulated and so incredibly boring...! In addition there is no focus on operations whatsoever as one would do in corporate private equity (improve costs, grow revenues etc).

Anybody made the move before?

I am looking to join a PE infrastructure firm. I have 10 years of experience in the industry and am currently in the second semester of MSF. Can you give me some ideas as to how I should proceed.

I talked to someone the yesterday and he moved from investment banking in the east coast to a PE firm dealing with Infrastructure assets in the west coast. Although the situation is reversed to what you are asking, he told me that the one way to make a move similar to what you are asking to just to start making calls and network with your counter party. This is how he made the move. If you'd like more details, IM and we can chat about this.

There are a number of PE shops that focus on greenfield infrastructure. Energy Capital Partners is a good example and they'll invest in everything from midstream and power generation assets to business services that support the energy industry. Not sure if their teams are segmented (if at all) but there are shops that mix both traditional infra and private equity type investing.

Expert in hindsight investing.
