I have been working at a credit HF for just over a year, focusing on leveraged loans (private lending, stressed credit and par loans). Before that I was at a BB bank in leveraged finance for 3 years. After working in leveraged products for 4 years, I've come to the realization that I want to move over to the public equity market.
My question is how hard would it be to do this and what would be the best path to start looking. I've come from a good background in my opinion, but it is not suited for equities. Although I'd argue as a credit investor there are pros to being on an equity investing team and the investment style I know of fundamental bottoms up research should transfer well to equities.
Please let me know if you have any valuable insight I should be thinking of.
