You could say that I have a friend that works there and that I made this anon account to post for him (this might go over some people's heads, hopefully you get it). The pay is street (100-112 base plus 30% bonus, which is dog shit especially considering it's in Canadian dollars). Seniors are toxic and pretend to care about the juniors through a yearly trip – they pat each other on the back after "giving back" to random causes which they don't care about (it's really a stunt to put in their yearly memo's to LP's). They're hiring bottom bucket analysts from ECM/DCM groups in Toronto and if god forbid you started there straight out of school, you're essentially stuck cause you can't go exit anywhere else. Worst of all is that you build no real skill set; all analysis is extremely high level and 80% of analyst work is data entry and plugging in random growth assumptions into templates.

Damn that's pretty good for first year out of school. Any idea on bonus/all-in?

Does not have the best rep on the street.

Returns are trash. What people fail to realize is that just because you're generating decent returns at a pension fund  (CPPIB/LP) doesn't mean you know how to generate returns / asset manage at the GP level.

8%? How are these guys getting paid?

WH called emergency staff meeting on 17th to address this page... #1 refused to address any of the concerns or even touch upon them that they will be fixed... Just legal

Can you elaborate a bit on the math for the second option? They keep the senior piece and carve out the equity tranche, so their return is basically whatever interest rate they charge on the senior plus whatever they can sell the equity for - is that right?

Dude seems like this whole thread is you trashing on WH. What do you have against them? Maybe they didn't hire you one time. 

I am in the industry, albeit very junior. Have heard nothing but good things from other firms, one of their large pension LPs and placement agents.

You actually read this whole thread and you're still asking about the interview process...?

I was headhunted for WH a few times and it always struck me as "too good to be true." They clearly pay well to incentivize talent who would otherwise not give secondaries the time of day, but they still work hard which leads to the question of: what's the exit from this?

This is very hard for me to do but I'm being brave and coming forward about my experience interviewing at white horse liquidity partners for an internship. Everything was going normal at the super day I went through three interviews which had a mix of technical and behavioral questions. Then at the end they took us out to dinner and drinks. During the drinks event at a local bar I was mercilessly harassed. The employees of the firm peer pressured me into doing fortnite dances while yelling "go white boy go". This deeply unsettling experience ruined my confidence and left me in a state of total apathy. I burned out of finance, dropped out of college and now sell kombucha beverages outside of Barry's boot camp locations to get by. Please let this story not be forgotten. This is a testament to how sick and cruel this firm is
