JB Capital, a Bellevue, Wash.-based investor focused on market areas underserved by institutional investors, has made a strategic investment in Jensen Partners, a women-owned executive search and corporate advisory firm.

Jensen Partners also offers limited partner and general partner referencing, investor referencing methodology and benchmarking and analysis. The investment looks to drive Jensen Partners’ ability to provide asset managers with data-driven services that address a range of talent challenges, including diversity, equity and inclusion, recruiting, hiring and retention.

“Given the intense competition for talent across asset management, hiring decisions have become increasingly important for firms,” says Jeremy Hill, founder of JB Capital. “At the same time, investors are demanding more comprehensive DEI reporting from managers. Jensen Partners’ unique ability to empower confident hiring and DEI decisions sets them apart from competitors and will accelerate customer acquisition and growth across the platform.”
