Jensen Partners (“the Firm”), a women-owned executive search and corporate advisory firm for the alternative investment management industry, today announced it has been named “Best Recruitment Company for Investor Relations & Asset Raising” at Private Equity Wire’s 2022 US Awards. Nominated firms in the service provider categories were based on a widespread survey of more than 100 fund managers and other key industry participants from across the alternative asset management space.
This marks the ninth time the Firm has been recognized by Private Equity Wire, and the second time during the month of October 2022 – the firm was recently named “Best Recruiter” by Private Equity Wire and Hedgeweek as part of its joint European Credit Awards. Jensen Partners’ continued success is driven by its innovative suite of technology and data-enabled talent solutions that create measurable, actionable and meaningful progress for recruitment and DEI challenges across each and every asset class.
“Jensen Partners has worked tirelessly to build the industry’s leading talent solutions platform,” said Sasha Jensen, founder and CEO of Jensen Partners and Jensen DiversityMetrics™. “We look forward to continuing to guide our clients through what has been an especially competitive talent market and remain focused on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels and in every industry.”
The win comes as part of the publication’s annual set of awards, which recognize excellence among private equity fund managers and service providers in the US across a wide range of categories. This year, votes were cast by hundreds of Jensen Partners’ colleagues from across the industry, including GPs, LPs and service providers in the alternative investment space. The 2022 Private Equity Wire US Awards were announced and celebrated in person in New York on October 26, 2022. In addition to winning the 2022 Private Equity Wire US Awards, Jensen Partners has won five other global awards for recruiting in the alternatives space during the last twelve months.
