Rant thread at stupid college students and 1st year analysts

I hate these stupid college students/1st year analysts that keep calling literal TOP tier funds like H&F (who raises more capital than your precious TPG btw) a middle market fund. Are you people literally retarded? Below are some of the largest funds (ex funds which are mainly infra/energy e.g. EQT/Encap by 2019 YE last 5 years' capital raised). Basically all of them have flagship funds in the range of 10-26bn and deploy checks in the 400-2bn (ex co-invest) ranges. They have different strategies and so may compete differently but they are ALL large cap.

Educate yourselves and stop posting. FYI I (and you) should/would take H&F over any fund in the below list, yes even BX. It's probably the best job in PE.
