Rank: Baboon | 121

Hi Folks,

I recently finished with my MBA in Finance from a top 30 school. I have multiple offers and need help in selecting the best role that'll help me land into PE later. Prior to MBA, I have worked in a big 4 corporate finance ~ 3 years. The first one is a Sr. Associate role in Portfolio valuation (think HL, D&P etc.), second is a 1st year associate at a boutique IB and the last one is a corp dev associate role with one of the insurance companies. Compensation wise the base comp is pretty comparable, bonus being the highest in IB. The portfolio valuation team is solid and growing like crazy on the street.

Which of the these will help me with my story transitioning into PE 2-3 years down the road? Pour in your wisdom. Thanks!
