Jensen Partners Opens New Office in Miami
January 27, 2023 – Jensen Partners, a women-owned executive search and corporate advisory firm that enables data-driven talent solutions for the asset management industry, has continued its expansion with the opening of a new office in Miami.
“As Miami grows into a major global financial center, it is important for our firm to be strategically located to serve our growing list of clients who have expanded their footprint into South Florida,” said Sasha Jensen, founder and CEO of Jensen Partners. “Our global reach enables us to build deeper relationships with the best talent across key markets, providing our clients with superior long-term human capital solutions.”
Jensen Partners’ new Miami office is part of a wider commitment to expand client relationships and access to talent pools in growing financial hubs around the world. The new location will be the firm’s fourth office in addition to existing offices in New York, London, and Hong Kong.

Sourcing Investment and Capital Raising Professionals
Jensen Partners is a global advisory, corporate development, and executive search firm that leverages its relationships in the investor and alternative asset management community to source and recruit capital-raising candidates. The firm takes a data-driven approach, combining quantitative and qualitative insights to source and place the ideal human capital. In addition to executive search, Jensen Partners offers LP/GP referencing, proprietary 360-degree investor referencing methodology, and compensation benchmarking and analysis.
As founder and CEO of Jensen Partners, Sasha Jensen leads a team of senior recruitment specialists and data scientists dedicated exclusively to the sourcing, recruitment and placement of capital raising and investment professionals for leading alternative investment firms. As a former investigative journalist, Ms. Jensen firmly believes that data substantiates an immediate call to action. A woman-owned business, Jensen Partners was founded in 2012 on the principle that diversity is a critical and immediate need in the alternative investment space.
Jensen Partners leverages its investor relationships as well as its proprietary big data recruitment and competitor intelligence market mapping model to source and place capital raising professionals. This model is based on the firm’s global database of more than 22,000 global alternative capital raisers, which includes professionals from private equity firms, private credit firms, real estate investment firms, real asset investors, infrastructure investors, and hedge funds.
Jensen Partners recently received a strategic investment from JB Capital, a Bellevue, WA-based investor focused on market areas underserved by institutional investors. Although the amount was undisclosed, the investment will enhance Jensen Partners’ ability to empower asset managers with data-driven solutions that address a wide range of talent challenges, including diversity, equity, and inclusion; recruiting; hiring; and retention.
“Jensen Partners is an industry leader with an innovative suite of technology and data-enabled talent solutions,” said Jeremy Hill, founder of JB Capital. “Given the intense competition for talent across asset management, hiring decisions have become increasingly important for firms. 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.”
The cornerstone of Jensen Partner’s data-driven approach is Jensen DiversityMetrics, an enterprise software platform that combines self-reported diversity data and human capital management technology specifically designed to enable asset managers to measure, report, and improve talent management. With Jensen DiversityMetrics, firms can benchmark against competitors, source diverse talent, analyze hiring and retention practices, identify biases in workplace culture, and report progress to investors. Jensen DiversityMetrics’ combination of quantitative analytics and qualitative information also powers Jensen Partners’ executive search and recruitment offerings, including Jensen Diversity Pipeline Tracker, an on-demand diverse candidate pipeline.
