I'm currently a 2nd year PE analyst in Canada at a small LMM PE firm, and I've been looking to transfer into a MM PE firm (in Canada). I want to make the transition mainly because of the poor culture in my office and the very low comp. I have some friends who work in PE in both Toronto and Montreal at MM PE firms ($1-5B AUM), and their experience so far has been much more positive than mine.
Does anyone have any information regarding culture, comp, and upward mobility at either Novacap or Torquest Partners? I have been able to find some info on Torquest, but there is very little about Novacap on these forums. They operate mainly out of Montreal but they also have an office in Toronto, their AUM is currently just under $3B (CAD).
If anyone has info, it would be very much appreciated!!
