Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Tags

Happy Presidents’ Day, all.¬†Have you ever interviewed for a job 18 months before the supposed start date? Well, that is what is being asked of many¬†junior¬†investment bankers. According to an article from DealBook, some PE firms are courting these young bankers even earlier this year in an effort to¬†overcome the hiring frenzy. Hearsay points to Golden Gate Capital as the catalyst for the¬†particularly early¬†start this year.

The hiring strategy is not the only thing changing for PE firms. David Bonderman also remarked last week¬†that traditional fund structures are¬†losing luster among many LPs. He explained, “A lot of people want to co-invest‚ÄĚ and that ‚Äú[t]hey want special deals.‚ÄĚ Looks like the idea of proprietary deal flow no longer applies to just GPs.
