Hudson Advisors – Why Work For Us?

Hudson Advisors LLC and its global subsidiaries (collectively, "Hudson") is a globally integrated asset management company that performs due diligence and analysis, asset management, and other support services for Lone Star Funds ("Lone Star"), a leading private equity firm that invests globally in distressed assets. Formed in 1995, Hudson (formerly known as Brazos Advisors, LLC) is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and has subsidiary offices in New York, Montreal, San Juan, London, Frankfurt, Munich, Luxembourg, Dublin, Madrid, Paris and Tokyo. Hudson and its subsidiaries collectively employ approximately 800 professionals. Both Hudson Advisors LLC and its subsidiary, Hudson Americas LLC, are investment advisers registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commisssion. 

Hudson has significant expertise in loan servicing and asset management, providing a full range of services that include due diligence and valuation, financial services and reporting, income and property tax compliance, currency and interest rate hedging, risk management, information technology development and systems support. Certain of the Hudson subsidiaries are rated primary and/or special servicer by Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor's Rating Services. Hudson has direct experience in workouts of distressed loan portfolios, corporate restructurings/turnarounds, rehabilitation and repositioning of real estate assets across a variety of property types, land and real estate development and servicing a variety of debt instruments. 

Since the establishment of its first fund in 1995, Lone Star has organized twelve private equity funds (the "Funds") with aggregate capital commitments totaling over $45 billion. Since that time, Hudson has provided due diligence and analysis, asset management and other support services to approximately 807,000 assets with an aggregate purchase price of more than $110 billion (including acquisition financing and co-investor equity). Hudson maintains strategic oversight of specialty management firms that are owned by a Fund or Funds to service certain assets requiring specific management expertise.

    I have been working at Hudson Advisors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work hard and fast from the moment you walk in the door. Love the busy days, time goes by so quick I have to set an alarm to leave on time. Company benefits are on par or above standard for the industry. Company provided new modern HP laptop dual monitors and iPhone from day one. Plenty of fun after work corporate events and charitable fund raisers for the community. Holiday Party is awesome! Larry North Fitness is in the building and Hudson Advisors pays a portion of the membership cost. Got to love getting in shape while at work and not having to make time after work. Hudson Advisors provides underground parking in the building and that’s a plus in my book.

    Cons

    Hard work and fast pace. If you’re not ready to work all day and at times work at home, you may want to look at the greener grass on the other side of the fence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Running a successful company is hard enough, your employees make the difference. Hire the rights ones from the start, provide the tools they need and it will all work out.
