Making the Jump from Banking to Private Equity Firms
Having lost some of its glamour and financial rewards recently, is it better to move to a private Equity firm?
- How about starting your career with a Private Equity Firm? Private Equity is an attractive alternative to banking with £5,000 more in bonuses at Analyst level, and as much as a £46,000 gap at Associate level.
- PE firms have upped the financial ante to compete with banks: Fresh out of their 2-year analyst training programmes, Associates and VPs are highly skilled, energetic and effective junior executives, which PE firms are keen to poach - Associate and VP level Bonuses are 33% higher in Private Equity firms vs. investment banks.
- Senior executives are still better off in the banking sector: Total compensation evens out at Director level, and takes a clear lead for bankers at MD level with a 19% gap.
