NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jensen Partners, an executive search and corporate advisory firm for the alternative investment management industry, today announced it received two accolades at the 2020 Private Equity Wire USA Awards. At a ceremony conducted virtually on October 8th, the firm was named "Best Recruitment Company for Executives." In addition, Jensen Partners was recognized for the second consecutive year as "Best Recruitment Company for Investor Relations & Asset Raising."
These multiple wins build on the firm's recognition in the annual Private Equity Wire European Awards, which were announced in March 2020. The US awards are based on a 'peer review system' whereby the publication's readers - including institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers – vote for winners. In each category, firms with the most votes at the end of the voting period are subject to a final review by Private Equity Wire's Senior Editorial team. This year, there were a total of 16,977 votes cast with 22 percent of those coming from Limited Partners (LPs), and 39 percent each from General Partners (GPs) and Service Providers.
"We are extremely grateful to have received these two outstanding awards; these reward our efforts to ensure successful long-term placements for our clients. Our investment in technology and our human capital expansion throughout Europe and North America have been key to our success," said Sasha Jensen, Founder and CEO of Jensen Partners. "Being recognized by our clients and their investors as well as service providers is particularly gratifying as it speaks to our name in the executive recruiting industry and the core relationships we have built over the past decade. This year, we invested in creating a bespoke software platform to curate a Diversity Data Analytics methodology and hired four senior executives to our firm."
