2018 Carried Interest and Compensation Survey




Our 11th Annual Survey!  90 pages of data on carried interest, salaries and bonuses for private equity.

This is the 90-page, tenth edition of the Carried Interest and Compensation Survey. This year we had 325 funds participate. The survey’s compensation data is comprised of salary, bonus and carried interest paid over the prior 12-month period. The survey was conducted from September 3 to September 28, 2018.

This year’s survey results total 90 pages of graphs and data. We break down the allocation of carry by fund size, and segment the results by five different position classes – Partners, Top Professionals, Middle Professionals, Entry Professionals and Administrative Staff.

The survey also shows salary, bonus and carry compensation by fund size among 11 different partner/employee classes. This year’s survey also provides 5-year averages (2014 to 2018) for compensation for all of the partner/employee classes.

We also present data on the average staffing of private equity firms. These results are organized by function.
