Private Equity

In this section

The global private equity market is booming. Last year in Europe alone there was roughly €200 billion invested across 2,300 deals.

Private equity fundraising also continues to impress with €500 billion a year being raised across Europe.


Private equity is arguably the most fascinating part of the financial services market. Not only do the funds make investments, but they are also very active in increasing the value of the business they have just invested in. This operational value enhancement is quite unique and adds a different dimension to the investment process.

Talk to us about how we can help

Every role within a private equity fund has a commercial element.

The funds themselves are run lean which means that everyone there needs to be adaptable and pulling in the same direction. Each fund's culture is unique, and we work with small first time funds up to global players. 

Although the functions may seem the same there are very intricate differences which can make all the difference in the selection process.

Making the wrong hiring decision can be costly.

We do everything we can to ensure every search reaches a successful conclusion. Hanover utilises its market leading executive search and leadership assessment capabilities to advise our clients and find them the very best people for their businesses.

Uniquely, it doesn’t stop once the successful candidate is in their seat. We also offer ongoing coaching and development advise to ensure both parties get the most out of their new relationship.
