Long time browsing on this website - had a quick question as I am interviewing in the next week for a private equity role in London.
Bit of background: I graduated from a top university in the UK, worked at a large institution in research (non-financial for a year) and moved to a long-only fund where I have been a bit over two years. My fund is bottom-up and we take a long-term investment horizon (concentrated portfolio of 20-25 names), usually 10% positions in public companies (generally emerging markets in Asia and LatAm). I meet management of my holdings often and we have an activist slant (more pro-active than threatening rather).
I was pitched for a private equity role (growth equity). As I have no deal experience or IBD background, does anyone have advice on how to sell myself for the position? I can speak to a few similarities in investment experience, but do lack the active work on transactions.
Thanks in advance..
