Sustainable Finance Private Equity Execs See a Rise in Pay to 7 Figures


Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2022 -- Sustainable finance used to be an area of expertise that fell pretty far down the scale in terms of remuneration. However, today given the huge shift towards more environmentally-focused economies, specialists in this field are now able to command significant sums. Recent figures show that firms today are willing to considerably increase what they are willing to pay those with expertise in this area, which has meant many private equity executives have seen a rise in pay up to seven figures. Compared to 12 months previously, pay levels are up at least 50% and this is something that is likely to continue as the talent pool in this area is still relatively small. More contracts are also starting to integrate profit-sharing into employment agreements - this is just one of the changes that show just how valuable executives with this skill set are now considered to be, and the measures that firms will engage with in order to recruit competitively.

As experienced private equity recruiters, the team at Selby Jennings has watched the trend towards rising pay for sustainable finance private equity executives expand over the past year - and been able to support many talented people in terms of taking advantage of it.
