TORONTO 2020 1st-Year PE Associate Compensation

What is an expected range for 1st year Assoc. comp at a good GP or Pension in Toronto? Data points on a per firm basis would also be helpful. Split between base and bonus would also be helpful

Thanks man! Any specific data points on the mid-market firms? Maybe Imperial, TorQ, BHEP or Clairvest?

Any insight on how Altas, Onex Brookfield, BHEP, Torquest, etc do their recruiting for PE associates?

Briefly looked at some of the recent Altas and Onex associate hires and many seem to come from U.S BBs. Do they recruit analysts from Canadian banks. If so what groups, and only in Toronto or across other regional offices as well?

All of these firms use HH's. Brookfield will put up postings on job boards but they are like a black hole. Onex and Altas do typically hire from BBs because pedigree matters I guess. Both have also hired from RBC. Typically RBC M&A places well but I've seen people move from some of their coverage groups in Toronto as well.

In the L2Y, RBC tech in TO has sent one to Onex and one to Altas FWIW. M&A team has also placed a few at Oncap. Brookfield seems to take more from other M&A groups at Canadian banks (Scotia, BMO and RBC)

Curious about comp/recruiting at Catalyst Capital. Seems like the only fairly large distressed shop in Canada. Although I'm not sure how fun working for Newton Glassman would be.

Why's that? I'm unfamiliar with the Canadian PE scene.
