Lateral Recruiting in Growth Equity
Current 2nd year analyst at a LMM ($1.5bn AUM) growth equity shop. I've recently seen some discussions around growth equity recruiting from IB or out of undergrad on the forum but haven't seen much about going from one GE shop to another. Would love any insight on this. Specific questions being:
- How often to do growth equity funds make lateral hires from other funds?
- What's the typical recruiting process in this case? Who should I be talking/reaching out to for networking (recruiters, associates, partners, etc.)?
- How best should I position myself to compete with candidates coming from IB for an associate role (I don't have IB background)?
Any feedback is welcome. Thanks all.
