PE teams in Sovereign Wealth Funds

Hi all, 

Curious about the differences between:

  • working in the PE team of an SWF (e.g. GIC, ADIA, QIA), and

  • working in a traditional PE shop

I'm guessing that private PE shops have a bit more flexibility in the types of deals/structures they can pursue and bonuses they can offer, but with more demanding hours. Would that be accurate? Any other differences between such organisations e.g. different exit opportunities, cultural nuances, hiring/training practices, etc?

Hey pierheld, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I am sad to say, but this thread is lonely, so thought I'd post in here to try and help out. Some potential topics that might help:

More suggestions...

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.
