Thank you. Surprising indeed both on the comp front and on the BarCap front.

Barclays is surprisingly more active than both. Last time I checked (2yrs ago) comp at GS and Barclays was in line w London and slightly lower than NY

I work in FS comp consulting. Firms still struggle to find an appropriate level. Consulting at Tier 2 firms is around 2/3 US or UK rates. For IB, I'd say 70% US rates. Citi, JP, GS, BarCap all active. Check out Rothschild and Apax too.

Highly appreciate the additional color. I should probably have qualified it in my initial post, my focus is on activity in terms of M&A/Restructuring only. Any additional insight on Apax and other foreign buyside players would be welcomed. Lastly, any tips around navigating recruiting in the Israeli market would be highly useful (i.e networking based only or any key serious headhunters focusing on the space)

The local IB shops are small - direct networking with MDs/COO is all you need. Apax is the only foreign PE with meaningful presence and they are fairly active. Otherwise -FIMI, which is an Israeli PE, is probably second best.

Thank you. Very helpful information. I understood that comp is an issue with Israeli PEs generally and FIMI/Fortissimo specifically. Any info on Battery Ventures? Globally they do both VC and Growth Equity PE. Not clear if they are a pure VC shop in Israel. Lastly, regarding the comp benchmarking, I assume the info provided above reflects total comp (base + bonus) vs the comp levels in London/NYC

Arrow Icon

I know comp is lower for local PEs but not sure how low. Battery has only VC arm there, if I'm not mistaken. I was referring to total comp when comparing. Would also note that from what I've seen, most IBs there struggle to find good associates or VPs that actually want to move to Israel so with the right background, it should be easy to land a job.

Thank you. Extremely useful information.

I started a new job a few months ago and the female lead on my team told me on my first week that I should have come in two levels below the level I was hired for. She then told me the only reason I came in at the level I was hired for was because of my salary requirement and I would not get promoted easily/quickly (keep in mind I’m not thinking about this during my first week lol). Since then she has never brought this up but I still feel weird about it.
