About our 2016 PE/VC Survey

Launch of MM&K’s 2016 Global Private Equity 

Venture Capital Compensation Survey

We are pleased to announce the launch of our 21st annual compensation survey, in which we would like to invite your private equity or venture capital firm to participate now. Due to growth in participation and global interest in 2015, we are now offering a series of three expanded and comprehensive reports, covering the UK and mainland Europe (with an extended focus on Switzerland), North America and Asia.

MM&K partner with Holt Private Equity Consultants and Buyouts Insider (formerly part of Thomson Reuters) in North America, Carrots for Financial Services in Asia and HCM International AG in Switzerland to produce a survey that promises market-leading participation and coverage to our clients on three continents.

Our survey offers a comprehensive market view of competitive compensation strategies across the private equity sector. We cover all aspects of compensation, including salaries, bonuses, carry and co-investment plans, as well as a broad range of human capital and staffing issues.

The European survey covers 32 investment and non-investment roles in a range of alternative asset management strategies, including:






Growth Capital




Venture Capital


Fund of Funds


Seed Capital


Infrastructure and Real Estate





A key feature of the service we offer is the ease at which our participants can use the market data. We achieve this by providing, in addition to the report:


A management summary table which shows, role by role, a comparison between your own remuneration levels and the market quartiles


All data tables in both PDF and Excel format

To give you a feel for the topics covered in our 2016 survey, we have produced a sample of the 2015 European report and management summary. This is an abbreviation of the full report using dummy data, but gives a clear view of last year’s participants and the wide scope of information we provide to our clients. With the introduction of our Global survey this year, we are expecting significant growth in participation. 

If you are interested in participating this year or if you would like to preview a sample report please contact Participating firms who choose not to purchase the full report(s) will still receive an executive summary of the European analysis.

The results will be available to participants from September as three separate reports, with pre-order prices and bundle deals on offer for multi-region purchases. Our pricing structure can be found in the order form referred to above.

MM&K also offers bespoke advice on private equity compensation, including incentive and carry plan design, structure and implementation, as well as remuneration policies and technical documentation drafting. Full details of our services can be found below:
