Heidrick & Struggles: 2022 North American Private Equity Investment Professional Compensation Survey

In this annual survey, it includes a review of trends in private equity markets, hiring, and compensation after half a year of intense market volatility. Heidrick & Struggles compiled compensation data from a survey of 939 investment professionals in North America. 

Notably, US PE firms completed approximately 4,000 deals, with a cumulative value of just over $400 billion.

The survey covers key findings in private equity, including:

  • Candidates who are diverse are seeing increases in cash compensation ranging from 50% to 200%.

  • 2022 is shaping up to be materially busier than last year, which, in and of itself, was a record year.

  • At more senior levels, hiring is also active, mostly to drive expansion into new sectors or strategies.
