Recommended Pathway to Private Equity

Now, I am going to also give you a framework to understand, how to get into private equity firms in Mumbai. First of all understand, that an investment bank, equity research or private equity is very similar because the technical skills are common.

So I’ll first list out the common technical skills

  • Firstly, financial statements analysis.
  • Secondly, Business understanding and research( By far the most important skill required in Private equity).
  • Thirdly, valuation and not just DCF valuation but all kinds of valuation.
  • Finally, excellent writing skills.

Unique Skills for Private Equity

Now, just for private equity, things can become very real because in private equity we are investing in mid size and sometimes start ups.

So, the interation level with the owners of business and investors is quicker than it would take you in a typical IB set up doing IPO’s.

So the typical unique skills to private equity are;

  • Sales skills
  • Listening skills
  • Story telling

While, these skills might sound like overdly simple but they are not. Sales skills, take time to become comfortable. Hence, people who are very keen on private equity, should never run away from sales.
