Hi there - how is Hg Capital perceived in the buyout / growth equity world? Any colour as to prestige, comp, work/life balance? Thanks a lot

No - I want to move into the software space and have decent colour on most of the main players except for Hg. Do you know anyone there?

Know several people here across their three funds (Mercury, Genesis and Saturn).

Never heard of negative comments on culture bar that it is perceived as "nerdy". They are extremely active on PF (not buy and let it ride) especially in their LMM/MM funds.

 

Pushing more growthier deals in areas they know well. 
 

They have made a bunch of hires recently (new funds) and are using Dartmouth Partners.

 

super solid returns & have just upped comp...
