Hi all !
I am currently working as a 2nd year M&A analyst in a generalist team (meaning no industry focus). As I am thinking about specializing in a specific sector (I do have my own ideas and preferences), I did also think of "specializing" in PE-related deals: i.e. M&A deals involving PE sponsors and thus developing an expertise on PE-related thinking and way of doing things instead of classical sectorization (consumer, TMT, ...)
Thing is I feel the need to have my own field of expertise rather than scratching the surface of every subject possible ...
What do you think about this idea ? Dumbest think you ever heard or could make sense according to you ?
Eager to hear your arguments (especially from the most senior of you guys)
