I'm a current TMT IBD Analyst that has just been headhunted today for a real estate private equity acquisitions position at one of the large cap funds (BX, Starwood, Brookfield, Lone Star, Carlyle). The role sounded amazing and I want to prepare as much as possible, however I wasn't given that much time until the first round and given my 80 hour+ work weeks and the short time frame I don't have the time to sit through a full REPE financial modelling course therefore I am coming to WSO for advice.
I was told the first round would include technicals specific to REPE however I've never touched the sector and so have zero technical knowledge regarding REPE. I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to offer an overview for what key REPE technicals you would advise learning ahead of the interview and any key / common technical interview questions it's worth knowing ahead.
I understand there might be similar threads in the past but I would appreciate everyone's thoughts - thank you!
