My Story

You are extremely motivated to have a buy side career. I want to help you achieve that success.

The buy side job search process is challenging and opaque. It’s very different from the structured process for investment banking, sell-side research, consulting, and engineering. I have over a decade of experience on the buy side and have become an expert of the job search process.

After coaching hundreds of candidates on breaking into the buy side, I want to help you achieve the same success.

I’ve compared a lot of career coaching services, and Buyside Focus is the only one with significant experience focused on buy side recruiting. Kelvin knew exactly what questions my fund asked, and having our mock interview was critical in getting my offer. My interview was much stronger as a result, because we prepped for all the questions the fund would ask.

Joined CitadelChicago

Kelvin improved my networking with PE funds and it was tremendous to getting more interviews. We also went through the essential interview questions to prepare for private equity, particularly on my transaction experience and the LBO case. I feel a lot more confident heading into my interviews.

Joined Mega-Fund Private EquityNew York

Kelvin gave me details about the funds for my upcoming interviews, and prepared me to anticipate the fit and technical questions that will be asked. I am a lot more knowledgeable about asset management interviews than when I first started recruiting.

Joined Large Credit Asset ManagerSan Diego

Kelvin worked tirelessly with me to perfect my LBO case for an upcoming interview. I owe my private equity job offer to him and the entire Buyside Focus team.

Joined Middle-Market Private EquityChicago

I completely revamped my resume targeting hedge funds as result of my conversation with Kelvin. He really knows hedge fund recruiting and how it’s different from investment banking. I started getting interview invites and it’s money well spent.

Joined Start-Up Hedge FundSan Francisco

Kelvin gave me a lot of insight into the funds I’m interested in, and helped me prepare my talking points for coffee chats and upcoming interviews. Our discussions helped me feel confident in my job prospects. Having a coach on the buy-side guiding me along the way is invaluable and something I couldn’t find anywhere else.
