Wanted to get some thoughts as to a transition from PE to HF.
I joined my current firm straight out of graduation. My vertical is the debt investment arm under a broader umbrella of a firm that also does traditional VC/PE. So think Sankaty Advisors and Bain Capital, Whitehorse Capital and HIG Capital, etc.)
There's some good information on a previous thread (https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/pe-vs-hf-ls...)but wanted to see if anyone had any other inputs. Also very interested in comparing lifestyles between the two. While I surely don't mind putting in hours over the weekends, I've come to resent having such an unpredictable working schedule. My thoughts is that your hours will typically be better in an HF given you are working around market hours (which are set) vs working around transaction timing (which are unpredictable).
Thanks in advance.
