Asset Management

Our Asset Management team has an outstanding reputation  

The world of asset management and alternative investment is experiencing an unprecedented time of change with increasing regulation creating a challenging space to work in.  This has meant that firms have had to innovate, using technology and digital to engage more with clients.

Our Asset Management Team operates across the major financial centres in the US, Europe, Middle East, India and Australasia leveraging expert local knowledge within the context of our wider global reach.  Our global talent solutions span executive search, consulting solutions and talent advisory services, working with our clients on their short, medium and long term needs.


Many of our consultants have been working together for more than a decade, delivering deep industry knowledge, perspective and an unparalleled track record of success for our clients. The asset management team collectively have between them more than 25 years’ experience placing talent across:


  • all senior leadership roles (CIO, CEO, heads of asset class)
  • investment roles (portfolio manager & research professionals across traditional and alternative asset classes)
  • distribution (institutional, intermediary, insurance, retirement and retail)
  • as well as other hiring strategies covering expansion, restructuring, and lift-outs.
