Award Highlights a Year of Record Growth and Innovation at Jensen Partners
NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2021
NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jensen Partners, a woman-owned, data-driven, global human capital advisory firm focused on solving staffing and DEI challenges across the alternative asset industry, today announced it has been named "Best Recruiter" for the fourth consecutive year at the 2021 Alt Credit US Services Awards.
The Alt Credit US Awards recognize private debt managers, credit hedge funds and industry service providers that have best been able to navigate the opportunities and pitfalls stemming from the 2020 pandemic crisis. The Alt Credit US Services Awards honors those service providers that outperform their peers by leading the way within the US credit fund industry. Judging was conducted by leading institutional and private investors as well as investment consultants. The winners were announced during an in-person ceremony on October 27th at the Metropolitan Club in New York.
"Winning this award validates the impact our data-driven approach is having across credit recruiting and DEI. This year Jensen Partners placed more credit talent than ever before in our history – and more than 80% of the candidates we placed identify as belonging to one or more underrepresented groups," said Sasha Jensen, Founder and CEO of Jensen Partners. "We have also expanded our ability to leverage data for our credit clients through our proprietary Diversity Pipeline Tracker and the launch of DiversityMetrics™ -- the first enterprise software platform to combine self-reported diversity data and human capital management technology specifically designed for asset managers seeking to quantify, measure, report and improve workforce diversity and inclusion.
Launched in June 2021, Jensen Partners' DiversityMetrics™ features a high-tech, high-touch approach that combines customizable data visualization tools with verified demographic data on more than 25,000 investment and distribution professionals, including 8,000 who identify as having a diverse background, working at more than 700 alternative investment firms around the world. DiversityMetrics™ empowers credit managers to build diverse candidate pipelines, benchmark DEI metrics and develop realistic goals and prescriptive actions to drive meaningful progress toward DEI objectives.
"This year has been an inflection point for DEI within the credit industry. Our long-standing commitment to identify diverse talent has enabled us to rise to the occasion," added Jensen. "We started tracking diverse talent in 2017 and have since grown our pipeline of diverse and underrepresented talent to include thousands of highly-qualified credit professionals. With our proprietary Diversity Pipeline Tracker, powered by DiversityMetrics™, Jensen Partners is able to source more diverse credit candidates than any other recruiter."
Jensen Partners specializes in the sourcing and placement of capital raising and investment professionals for the credit investment industry by leveraging its extensive investor relationships as well as its proprietary platform DiversityMetrics™ and big data recruitment model.
