Notice:  The latest Asia PE Remuneration Survey Summery 2008

Hunt Partners has completed the Asia ex-Japan PE Remuneration Survey (Summer 2008). This is the firm's annual PE survey and outlines the trends of packages in the region.  


The Dealmakers 


The Asia-India corridor has experienced tremendous growth in the Alternatives investing space over the past few years – a trend that will likely continue into the future as LP commitments continue to flow into the region. Hunt Partners has built a specialty practice of following the talent in this industry across Asia and India, the “Dealmakers”, those that have proven themselves to make the difference in sourcing, assessing and running deals. Hunt has put together an impressive track record of identifying and searching top-performing direct investment dealmakers.

Hunt Partner’s team provides unparalleled knowledge, service and advice in the "private deal" space (PE, Real Estate, Special Situations, Distressed, Infrastructure and Hedge Funds). As well as search in a timely manner, Hunt provides clients with advice on structuring and negotiating packages, retaining talent, referencing and team building that gives funds in Japan, Korea, Greater China, South Asia and India the key resources to outperform.


Hunt Partners has worked on behalf of some of the top international Alternative Investment funds. Our teams invest time and energy developing a close relationship with each client and understanding each firm’s philosophies and business models. We have developed several customized search strategies for each of our Alternatives clients to best serve their unique requirements.


Assignments we have worked on for the PE / VC firms include:

  • Partner searches for PE, Real Estate and Distressed Funds
  • Principal/VP to Managing Director for Alternatives (PE, RE, Distressed, Hedge funds)
  • Identifying senior management for Portfolio companies (CEO, COO, CFO etc)
  • Evangelizing would be entrepreneurs
  • Search of new team – helping our clients set-up first teams
  • Internal “Placement Agent” / Investor Relations


Along with recruitment of top management for these Alternative and "hard asset" investors in Asia, Hunt's expertise in the "direct investment" industry gives us a unique perspective to provide market intelligence and consulting service to our clients - a true partnership that often goes beyond talent acquisition.  Hunt's work includes putting together first-time teams, which requires a thorough understanding of the market and top professionals that impact the industry in Asia.

Portfolio Companies


Hunt Partners provides assessment of current management to ensure they are up to the demanding task of growing and, depending on the company's stage of development, will be well-suited to take the company through an exit.  


The search services ensure that the "missing parts" are brought on-board.  These are typically "C" level postings, but may also include Board Members and Heads of Departments. 


Search and Assessment services for portfolio companies are at times more demanding as the needs and expectations of both the PE / VC firm and the investee company itself must be satisfied.  Hunt Partners utilizes it's expertise in "industry" that is vital to this process.  

As part of Hunt's Private Equity practice, the firm also specializes in providing search and consulting services for "Portfolio Companies".  Ensuring that PE / VC funds have the right senior management team in their investee companies is vital for their success.
