There are currently two (excellent) offers on the table. One at a large PE investor (team) where I will work in FoF (think: Harbourvest), and another one at a 3-5x smaller pension funds PE investor (still large: >5 bln AUM) where I will work on FoF-Co-Sec investments.
Apart from some internships, I have no previous experience in IB and (in)direct PE.
I'm in doubt between these two
i) as I might like to make the step towards direct investments in the future
ii) as I am not sure whether I find FoF too qualitative or whether I find Co-invest too quantitative (I don't want to model all day, but I would like to model)
iii) as I do not want to limit myself too much for possible future roles: where could I end up when I want to exit FoF? And is it potentially better to exit FoF at large investor, or to exit FoF-Co-Sec role at smaller investor?
Could you maybe provide me some advice? Thanks in advance.
