Btw, internships will be virtual this year. Hopefully I will be able to perform remotely somehow haha.
recommend that you try getting an FO job if possible, at least you have your current offer to fall back on.

Ops is a dead end

Would obviously love to secure a FO role, but itíll be challenging given my school/prior experience.

What do you guys think about the hours-salary trade-off for MO/BO in BBs though? I think itís pretty decent ngl haha.

Nonetheless, I will try to secure the conversion first and perhaps take the CFA & maybe leverage out to FO/strategy consulting shops doing FS advisory.

Default associate

Hi all, just stumbled across this forum. I work in PE in the UK at a mid-market fund that has a good rep locally but probably unknown internationally. I worked at an MBB prior to this in Australia and I also attended Uni in Australia.

I want to move to a PE role in SG (not fussed whether it's midmarket, growth, or large cap).

Anyone have views on how hard / easy this will be? Recruiters have told me it will be hard given no local language skills and no working rights - apparently getting sponsored is very hard in SG now

I'm also considering doing an MBA at London Business School (already admitted) and then trying to move to SG post MBA. Can anyone comment on the London Business School MBA reputation in the SG finance scene?

Generally target schools in Singapore are pretty much the same elsewhere in APAC (your usual suspects like Oxbridge, HYP, Wharton and etc.) with the addition of NUS Global MBA which is only prestigious in Singapore. Youíll do just fine with the LBS brand anywhere within APAC.

By PE, are you eyeing local-centric boutique firms like Quantedge and GGV or multinationals like Blackstone? The former is undergoing a hiring freeze atm and possible downsizing that results in analysts fronting many hats.

With your experience, youíll be entering as a fresh MBA associate which would mean a drastic pay cut considering you spent some time in MBB. Unfortunately, consultants doing a lateral jump to finance wonít be compíd generously unlike someone in the STEM field.

I'm open to international as well as local firms, as long as the track record is strong and I like the team. In addition to the megafunds, places like General Atlantic, Affinity Equity Partners, Navis Capital come to mind. I had not come across the ones you mentioned - Quantedge looks more like a hedge fund and GGV looks like a VC fund

I suppose the question is will I be able to get one of these roles as is or will the LBS MBA give me an advantage (even if only a slight advantage)

Honestly, very tough and very low chances. you have no working permit in singapore and don't have much experience in these fields. MBA doesn't help in that regard too. it's easier to ask for transfer from MBB first and look for a job in singapore after.

Thanks for the response. You may have misread - I currently already work in PE in the UK and have done for 2 years. MBB was my role prior to PE.

So I do have the relevant experience but alas no working permit. How does that change your response, if at all?
