The world of banking is home to some of the highest paying jobs around, and private equity experts are a prime example. At its simplest, Private Equity experts acquire or invest in private businesses with the aim to improve their value over time. In practice, the private equity space is extremely complex, consisting of countless rules and regulations, structures, extensive jargon, and highly specialised professionals.
It’s hard to get started in the industry, especially since previous experience in the finance industry is almost always a requirement. From account management and fundraising to financial modelling and business analysis, private equity professionals boast incredibly robust and versatile skillsets. According to Indeed, the average private equity associate role salary in London (the entry level that many private equity professionals begin their careers at) is £68,489 a year, with the VP wage raising to £120,769.
Alongside the high base salary, private equity jobs usually benefit from great bonuses based on their performance, usually in the form of commissions as a result of securing deals. Private equity presents some truly narrow career paths, and as a result, hiring criteria is often extensive (and rigid). For those of you looking to take on private equity experts, it’s important to make sure you secure the right candidate the first time. Whether you’re looking for a deal-maker, a fundraiser, an analyst, or someone that can handle all of the above, it’s worth staying selective.
