I'm looking to gain more insight into the private equity space in Canada, particularly for Toronto. I understand that there are historical posts addressing Canadian PE, but any updated information would be helpful. Please share any information you find relevant, such as best funds in the space, lifestyle, trends in recruiting or investments, etc.
Some major topics that still remain unclear even when factoring historical posts:
- What's the pay like for associates?
- Hours/lifestyle relative to banking?
- What's the most common path to breaking in?
