Alternative Investments

The right Financial Services talent for your team

Since 1993, we’ve been helping a range of clients with their Executive Search assignments. Our clients are based in the main financial centres of the world, and include institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds, asset managers, alternative investors, hedge funds and private equity firms of all sizes and specialities. We can also help with Consulting Solutions and Talent Advisory services.

A global reach with a personal touch

Our search consultants have relevant but varied backgrounds, spanning both the sell and buy side. Working across multiple jurisdictions and time zones, we take the time to get to know you and your team before we start your search. We’ll understand your needs, culture, vision and wider strategy, and only then will our search begin.

With an extensive network and significant experience, we’ll find the senior management, investment, distribution and corporate function talent that you need. We can also help with senior advisor, team and deal introductions.
