Lateraling from MBB to PE

Hi,

I'm thinking about focusing on jumping from MBB to PE after reasonable amount of time in consulting. I'm affiliated with PE practice within the consulting firm, however want to make sure i have all the necessary skills to make the jump.

Therefore I would like to ask for your opinion on the following topics:

  1. What position can I expect after ±2 years in MBB

  2. What are the respective skills I needs at this position? Are there any skills in particular that could help me differentiate myself further? 

Would really appreciate any help from people in the industry/someone who actually experience similar situation.

Thanks!
