M&A Analyst Transition to Real Estate Canada
Background: M&A analyst in Canada, up for associate promotion this year, decent deal experience but almost none in the real estate industry
Goal: Looking to make a long-term focused move, most interested in asset-level acquisitions / development in the residential properties (single-family, multi-family)
Top three things I value most for my next move: 1) Global brand name; 2) Relevant deal experience; 3) Pay
Which firms should I aim for and how do I best position myself for recruiting? Should I consider a rotation with the real estate or property brokerage teams within my bank first? Appreciate any insights!
