they are a fund of funds..investing in hedge funds and private equity funds. but other funds invest in them as well..

they also do co-investments. for example, some buyout shop wants to buy a company, Hamilton Lane will supply $5 million alongside the billion dollar or million dollar acquisition.

but not sure what deals they have co-invested in..im not sure if the work with big guys..

do you have an offer from them?

accepted an SA with an IB in LA starting in mid June, but got an email yesterday for a late SA with them. I am actually going to attend the interview and see how it goes. Do you know anything about their interviews for SA? Technical? fit? what concepts should I refresh myself in?

Thanks bro I appreciate it.

For a summer analyst spot, it will probably be mostly fit.

But if you were able to get an IB spot, I'm sure you know the basics of economics, finance and accounting (ie DCF, three statements, etc.).

I'm not sure if you are interviewing with the Fund of Funds team or with their co-investment team.

If the IB you have an offer with is along the lines of a top boutique/top middle market/ or one of the top banks (GS/MS/ML, etc), you should stick with the IB.

But if the IB is some shitty bank that no one has ever heard of and only does $500K private placements, Hamilton might be the better choice.

How is the pay for analyst? hours? woth bothering with them?
I have an IB role with a decent boutique/MM. Its none of the banks that you mentioned above, but some people said the boutique is ok. Has been mentioned here on this forum before.

Anyways, how about for interns? how is the life for them? do they pay? People? What are their better offices? Any other info. I can obtained will be appreciated. Thanks so much guys. Have a nice memorial day.

with their co-investments group out of philly. in total they had about $1bn spread across 3 funds, 1 was a secondary fund, 1 was dedicated to ny state investments. hours would have been 50-60 a week with minimal weekends. i really like the 2 vps running the co-investments side. they offered 55k, with up to 50% bonus and revenue sharing. seems like a rapidly growing firm.

Hamilton Lane Co-Investment Team - Shed some light? (Originally Posted: 01/31/2008)

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on Hamilton Lane's Co-Investment Team. I believe this team does direct private equity investments alongside other institutional partners and is not part of their fund of funds/ private equity Asset Management business.

  1. Reputation
  2. Deal Size
  3. Deal Types (growth equity, buyout, etc.)
  4. Industries
  5. Completed Deals
  6. Anything else

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have never worked for them, but I did interview with them for a position straight out of undergrad. I was really put off by their info sessions and interviews. I am not 100% sure, but I believe that they do not do any direct investing (at least that is what I gained from my own research). The pay at the time that I was going through the interview process was a bit below street.
