REPE to loan originations?
I'm currently an acquisitions analyst for a 8B aum in a niche sector (self storage). I don't see great potential for growth at current firm and exploring new opportunities. Im finding it difficult to get senior analyst roles in other asset classes due to being only in self storage. I have an opportunity to join as a senior analyst with a large life co in originations across multiple property types. It seems like most prior analysts have left for acquisitions roles and not the other way around. Would I be making a mistake in making this move?
