PE and HF Headhunters

A list of Headhunters I came across. Figured I'd share it. Some don't seem that great, but I've interacted with a few names on the list. Really wish I had this list 2 years ago when I entered finance...

Hedge Fund and Private Equity Headhunter Database

Best of luck to all!

Anyone who has actually met with these shops (or knows others who have), feel free to provide any insight into their specialties, whether you thought they were any good, etc.

Patrick - just a thought, and perhaps it exists already, but a headhunter database (similar to the company database) could have a lot of value to the WSO membership. Probably something you've thought of / discussed already, but thought I'd throw my vote behind that as a possible next area for the site to expand into...

Start contacting now. Our first years have already been meeting with the headhunters for this upcoming season.

Don't have much more to add since most of the top tier guys were hit (CPI, Glocap, Oxbridge, SearchOne), but don't forget about Amity, Henkel Search Partners, and Dynamics Search Partners (different from the Dynamics listed).

Here are some specific contacts at each - hope they forgive me for the inevitable 30,000 emails from WSOers

Recruiters have already been reaching out to first year analysts at target firms. There are a lot of recruiters out there, but the ones below have the best relationships. Be careful because there are some real scumbags out there, i.e. recruiters who ask you to work exclusively with them or even pay for their services.

Amity Search Partners- PE
CPI- PE
Dynamics (DSP)- a must meet for HF but some good PE clients
Glocap- computer based process; your mileage may vary
The Oxbridge Group- PE
SearchOne Advisors- a must meet for HF but some good PE clients
SG Partners- PE

There are some newer firms out there, but they might not have great relationships with buyside firms.

You're missing McKibben and Henkel, both of whom cover several large funds.

"For all the tribulations in our lives, for all the troubles that remain in the world, the decline of violence is an accomplishment we can savor, and an impetus to cherish the forces of civilization and enlightenment that made it possible."
