Jobs in the Private Equity Industry
In terms of players active in the private equity market, there are the General Partners (GPs or fund managers) and Limited Partners (LPs or investors), who are the main actors (the LPs invest in private equity funds managed by the GPs who then use fund capital to invest in underlying private companies). Around the GPs and LPs are a number of other organisations that serve various functions in the industry such as fund administration services, asset managers, consultants and advisors, investment banks, placement agents, and legal and accounting, just to name a few. Within each of these are a range of other niches where some firms may have specialities or offer specific expertise to clients; and then each organization would also have its own structure of front, middle and back office functions.
Plethora of Private Equity Job Opportunities
Taken together, this industry creates a plethora of private equity job opportunities, many of which require specific training and experience. For example, front office investment professionals working at a GP could require a mix of skills such as investment banking, M&A experience, business management and operations, quantitative analysis and modelling, and/or first-hand entrepreneur experience. In contrast, investment professionals working at a LP would need a different skillset that emphasise portfolio construction, modelling and management, and risk return analytical skills.
Since private equity is still considered an alternative asset class, and hence, not as “mainstream” as fixed income or stock trading, the term “private equity” still carries with it a level of cachet and mystique with the general public. So to land a private equity job, that is quite unique and interesting to those who are outside of the private equity world.
