Specialized Search Services

  • Tailored to your specific search needs to keep our interests aligned, promote trustworthy relationship and objective advice.
  • Comprehensive, full coverage of candidate pool for strategically critical, failure-is-not-an-option, and highly specialized mandated searches.
  • Targeted and stealth approach, front-loaded with custom primary and secondary research.
  • Transparent project management including dynamic contact universes, networking plans and weekly activity reports with anecdotal notes.
  • Dedicated account manager and multiple execution recruiters.

  • Activity-driven with more aggressive outreach and fewer points of contact per submitted candidate.

Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager Compensation Advisory Consulting Service:

We are offering an in-person compensation advisory service focusing on Portfolio Managers. This is not a static compensation survey but a real time view of how your competitors compensate their PMs – this includes the tools and additional resources they use to retain them. This product is geared at firms who employ multiple portfolio managers (each with full discretion over their investments) and pay formulaically. The information which will be covered is unique, heavily guarded, and not available from any other source. The purpose is to help you determine how and why you are competitive, and where you are potentially falling short. The information is best used to attract new talent and retain existing PM’s.

If you are interested in this offering, please contact Adam for further information:

Adam L’Esperance is a partner at LRP with nearly 15 year of HF experience who will delve deep into the following topics:

  • General lay of the land regarding hedge fund PM’s and where there is the most demand and activity
  • Most coveted attributes in a PM amongst competitors and how they vary
  • Wide range in how multi-PM hedge funds compensate PMs
  • Important non-economic methods of compensation
  • Where do you stack up against your peer group?
  • How can you become more competitive within the structural limits of your firm?
