Hi guys, I'm a 2nd-year analyst working in a family office, managing a family's wealth amounting around USD 2B. We do all kind of investments including LBO, Real estate, Ships, and NPL. And our HQ located in North Asia.(Not Japan) And since we have slightly over ten professionals in the office, I'm engaged in most of the deals.
Anyhow, I 've just heard from my friend, working in BB IBD in wall street, having a 'family office style' working experience would not be appreciated, and it would be extremely diffucult to work in PE or HF, no matter where i'm targeting at(whether it's in HK, or Singapore).
I was shocked bcz what i do in this office, are exactly the same shits that every 2nd-year analyst does in PE or HF- crunching numbers using excel, building CF models for the projections, and making PPTs.
And.. here are my questions.
1) Is it really not appreciated?
2) Assuming the first question's answer is No, would MBA or CFA makeup and help me land a job in PE or HF? (I'm a CFA level 3 candidate and, at the same time, preparing for GMAT)
