Lateral in IB Hurt PE Opportunities?

Subscribe

I'm curious as to how much a lateral move in IB (from a smaller shop to BB/EB) diminishes your chances in getting MF or UMM interest compared to your peers, albeit on-cycle or off-cycle. How do buyside folks view this? Would really appreciate input from anyone who has experienced or witnessed this firsthand.

I know someone who went MM -> top Bb (Gs TMT/MS PA) and got a ton of great interviews. I don’t think he wanted to do PE
