Here were the average salary increases at PE, VC and CVC firms this past year

How big were the raises that professionals at private equity, venture capital and corporate venture capital firms got this past year? We have the data.

Everyone wants to make more money, but not everyone is comfortable talking about it—or asking for it.

We worked with compensation data firm J.Thelander Consulting to find out how big the raises were this past year in private equity, venture capital and corporate venture capital. Check out the charts below for a breakdown by role.

We’re also partnering with Thelander on our annual investment firm compensation survey, which covers base pay, bonuses, carried interest and more for 75+ positions.
