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.

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the New York office is unlike any I've ever experienced. It's vibrant and full of intelligent, motivated people that have the patience to explain all of the confusing concepts that are in this line of work (structured finance). I absolutely love working with the people on my small team and have learned so much in such a short time. The work creates pressure as there are dealines everywhere but the time really flies and no more is expected of you than what you're actually capable of doing. I've found this to be a strength of the management - to be able to manage timelines and allocate resources appropriately. While the days can certainly be long and demanding, the rewards make it all worthwhile. Everything, from the compensation and benefits to the after work social events, has created great experiences that keep me motivated to work harder. Both the institution and the work have definitely met expectations (prior to accepting the job offer) as the perfect place to work.

    Cons

    The hours can be long so managing my social life with work during the weeks can be difficult at times.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hudson Advisors (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very professional and timely. Everyone I interviewed with was extremely professional. The directions were perfectly clear, the location was great. The building is located just outside of downtown, which is perfect to avoid the downtown traffic.
