Private Equity Recruitment

Cobalt Recruitment has developed a truly outstanding track record within the private equity and principal investment space since the company’s formation in 2001.  We have successfully executed numerous placements at all levels from CEO and CIO through to entire teams of analysts and associates on a global basis for a broad range of clients. 

In the UK, our teams are specialists within the real estate, infrastructure and energy sectors whilst in regions such as the Middle East and Asia Cobalt’s focus is considerably broader and  is sector agnostic, as our larger teams and the nature of these markets makes this approach the natural one to take. 

Cobalt’s client base is broad and includes many of the world’s leading sovereign wealth funds, private equity groups, the principal investment arms of large asset managers and corporates as well as a number of family investment offices and boutiques.  We work with originators, portfolio managers, advisors and financiers and understand exactly where they can fit into well balanced teams.

Due to the global focus of many of our clients, we have built an exceptionally strong international network having successfully sourced top-tier private equity and investment banking professionals from the world’s leading financial centres, be they in North America, Europe or Australasia. 

Our specialist consultants also understand exactly how direct investment, co-investment and indirect or fund of fund investment can fit into our clients’ strategies.  We structure our services upon our client’s specific needs and can work on an executive search, exclusive or contingency basis depending upon the seniority and the challenges involved in filling very specialist roles.

Whether you are an organisation wanting to hire the best talent in the market or an investment banking or private equity professional considering the next step in your career we have the contacts, experience and resources to ensure we assist you in your search.

For a confidential discussion, please feel free to contact one of our consultants who will be happy to discuss how we can assist you in your search.
