Comp Increase at Warburg?

Have hard people saying Warburg stepped up pay by 30% for base and bonus. Can anyone confirm this? If true, would this make WP the highest paid firm outside of Apollo?

Can confirm - and based on my source, yup. Pay bump was to encourage people to stay longer, especially given the mass exodus in IB&S and historically paying below other MF

Confirmed 30%? Would put AS1 above $400k based on publicly available current comp figures.

WP is not the highest paying firm outside of Apollo lol. Know multiple shops that pay equal to Apollo at the associate level. Almost are all high-performing niche funds, e.g. GIP.

seriously? I've never heard any associate 1 at GIP quote anywhere near 390 all in. News to me. Also, curious about the other firms.

I work at an UMM and I got paid ~375 for my first full year at the firm. I think a lot of UMM pay just as much, if not more than MF PE
