    2019 MM&K Private Equity / Venture Capital Breakfast Seminar

    In early April, MM&K held a PE/VC Breakfast Seminar for the participants in its last three PE/VC Compensation Surveys. At the seminar the 2018 Landscape of the Private Equity / Venture Capital industry was discussed. We also discussed the outlook on what 2019 may hold for the industry.

    Prior to the event, MM&K organised a 2019 Pulse Survey, that was sent out to all of the invitees to the seminar, to get a picture of the most up-to-date Remuneration and Staffing trends in the UK and European PE/VC industries. Also, some of the interesting insights and findings from the 2018 MM&K PE/VC Compensation Survey were presented to compare with the results of the 2019 Pulse Survey.
    The event opened with a networking opportunity for all the attendees and closed with a vocal Q&A session.

    2019 MM&K Private Equity / Venture Capital Pulse Survey

    This short  Pulse Survey focuses on the most recent developments in the UK and European Private Equity / Venture Capital industry. The Pulse Survey is run for the benefit of MM&K’s PE/VC Compensation Survey participants, and provides them with an outlook on the most up-to-date trends in compensation and staffing levels in the PE/VC industry.

    91% of participating houses indicated a salary increase across all of their professionals at their most recent review date.  However, only 15% indicated increases in bonus levels for their investment professionals (over 2018).

    About 70% of the participants indicated they focused on selected groups of staff when determining bonuses for last year’s performance. 86% of firms expect an increase in the number of investment professionals in 2019.

    All in all, there remains perhaps a surprisingly high level of confidence in the industry, which is encouraging to see.

    If you are working in a Private Equity / Infrastructure / Venture Capital House and you believe that your firm might like to participate, please contact Margarita Skripina or request your questionnaire here.
