Private Equity Lists and Recruitment

While private equity most traditionally is recruited into after spending a couple years in investment banking, it is not the only way to get to private equity. Furthermore, studying the industry can be very useful for people interested in the private markets.

While there is a large and ever-changing universe of private equity firms, we try to provide you with some of the authoritative lists below. We also provide some local options.

PEI Media

Secondaries Investors 30 (SI 30)

A little bit of background first. Private equity secondaries are when an LP’s commitment to a private equity fund is sold to another investor. So when a firm invests with a private equity group, they are promising to give some amount of money to a fund. Secondaries involve either allowing someone to sell that commitment so the seller can use the money elsewhere, or, when a private equity fund is closing-out, buying companies from that fund. In either case, the commitment or company is often sold at a discount to make it attractive.
