I wanted to create a thread on providing good answers for the question: why megafund?
There have been several threads on the real reason why people choose MFs (pay, prestige, etc.). And there have been many threads on why MM PE instead of MF PE. But I have not seen any threads discussing good answers in an interview setting at a MF.
Obviously telling headhunters and MF interviewers that you want to work at a MF for the pay or prestige would be a terrible answers and immediately ding you.
The only good answers I could think of would be if you worked with a specific MF or they were strong in your specific sector. But how about more general answers about why you would want to do large-cap buyouts/work at a MF?
Any help would be much appreciated.
