I'm Matt Ting, the Course Director of Peak Frameworks.

I was a top bucket analyst in Evercore's technology M&A team. I received four bulge bracket / elite boutique offers and also worked at private equity firms Silver Lake Partners and Providence Equity.

Investment banking recruiting is a systematic process that can be solved with proper effort and strategy. The difference between getting a top offer and missing out completely often comes down to the right preparation.

Course Curriculum

  • How does the Peak Frameworks course compare to other guides out there?
    No other course provides this level of insight into the recruiting process. We'll cover the on-cycle timeline, case studies used by mega funds, and headhunter coverage. A big reason we created the Peak Frameworks course is because other guides had overly simplistic models and referenced outdated questions. We've hired and interviewed on behalf of the top private equity funds over the past few years and know exactly what you need to prepare. We are constantly updating our course materials and frequently ask our industry peers about the questions being asked.
  • What is your refund policy?
    The course can be refunded within 14 days. If you are unhappy with your purchase, you can request a refund. In order to qualify for a refund, you must complete Knowledge Assessment I in the course. This is to ensure that you have actually attempted to go through the course. Please note that your downloaded course materials are stamped with your email and name. We add emails found on circulated course materials to our internal blacklist.
  • Do you need paid resources to land a private equity offer?
    No, but many, many people pay for guides, private tutors and coaching because of how competitive the process is. It's not necessary, but it can save you critical amounts of prep time and give you a clear information advantage over your peers. The industry is honestly just very opaque, so it can be hard to succeed without the right insight. We guarantee that you'll save tons of time and maximize your chances at a top private equity offer by using this concise resource.
  • How important is modeling during on-cycle recruiting?
    The vast majority of top funds are going to give you an LBO model test during on-cycle recruiting, so we advise being able to build a simple LBO from scratch within 2 hours. During the off-cycle, there's a good chance you'll get a take-home case study and have to build a model from scratch. In super rushed processes, there may be more emphasis on doing a paper LBO and discussing transaction experience.
  • When should I start preparing for on-cycle recruiting?
    Recruiting has become so accelerated that the associate on-cycle process has typically kicked off within 4-5 months of graduation. It normally takes candidates at least a month or so to fully digest all of the information required, so we would recommend eager candidates to start studying shortly after graduation or concurrent with school.
  • How long will this course take me?
    There are ~10 hours of video content and 5 LBO model tests in the course. We would advise you to watch one to two hours of content per week and attempt one LBO model per week. Each model will take you between 2-4 hours. The ideal time frame would be about 5 or 6 weeks of prep.
  • Do you offer any coaching or tutoring?
    We have limited slots available for coaching. Please reach out to matt@peakframeworks.com if you would like to be coached for private equity recruiting.
  • How long do I have access to this course?
    Forever. You will have lifetime access to this course and all future updates.
