Risk Management & Compliance

A network of talent across the risk management and compliance space

We have deep, direct experience, knowledge and connections.

As new regulatory regimes have unfolded following the global financial crisis, we have helped Risk Management and Compliance clients to evolve and deliver the enhanced standards the industry and their clients demand.

With direct industry experience working in financial institutions and advisory firms, our risk management and compliance consultants come equipped with the expertise and hands-on experience garnered over the course of multiple economic cycles. We have successfully placed Chief Risk Officers and Chief Compliance Offices along with their direct reports at preeminent financial services firms, corporates and consultancies and have supported team builds under these individuals as part of long-term, strategic client partnerships.


Our consultants have a thorough understanding of risk, compliance, financial crime and regulatory affairs and deliver executive search, consulting solutions and market intelligence.


Our unique global advantage stems from diverse multi-cultural, cross-industry consultants in addition to our ten global offices which gives us a unique industry edge. Risk Management and Compliance is now at the forefront of business needs and with this in mind, we’ll identify and recruit the talent that you need.
