Who we are

Sophie Esch, Partner

Who we are

We have over a decade of experience recruiting within alternative assets.

Sophie Esch has recruited in alternatives for well over a decade. During this time, she has led a large number of searches to Partner level successfully for both private equity and hedge funds. She has worked for high profile large buyout funds, family offices, LPs, mid-market and venture capital funds, alongside both credit and equity hedge funds, with multiple placements in most of her clients. Additionally, she has helped build entire teams for new funds across a range of strategies. She has strong knowledge of the alternatives world and a broad network of contacts.

Sophie spent a number of years working on the alternatives team of one of London’s leading financial services search firms where she focussed on recruiting investment and investor relations professionals. Thereafter she co-founded a boutique with this same focus which she ran for eight years before establishing Avery Associates. Sophie read European Studies at the University of Manchester and has a Masters in Commerce from the University of Sydney. She speaks French and has recruited across various geographies worldwide.
