Hi guys, I'd like to hear your advice on this topic. A few questions:
1. How feasible is it to transfer from consulting to PE? What practice / specific project types to focus on in order to build up skills required by PE (ex: practice: corporate finance & strategy, PIPE, etc)?
2. What specific skill sets are valued by PE? What is the reason why PE hire consultants instead of investment bankers?
3. Following the above questions, how does people with IB / consulting background work together in PE? What would be the work split and major differences in job responsibilities (assuming same seniority)?
