Investment Management

Our highly-respected Investment Management Division operates within the UK and European marketplace, where we provide specialist recruitment services on a contract and permanent basis covering Technology, Operational Change, Risk and Compliance, Distribution, and Regulatory Change.

Our specialist areas cover the niche order management systems (OMS) such as Charles River, Thinkfolio, Simcorp and Blackrock Aladdin.

Our focus brings expertise and insight

Our specialisation means we are ideally placed to help our clients find the right people to meet their changing needs. For example, we have been at the forefront of the emergence of Distribution Functions where Sales and Marketing, Digital, Web and CRM departments increasingly work in partnership with technology.

We have also helped clients adapt to the impact of regulatory developments. We have provided input, advice and specialist resources covering MiFID2, PRIIPS, Solvency 2, SMRC and GDPR from technology and business perspectives.

We have also partnered with a number of clients to build out their Aladdin implementation teams and work with the majority of Charles River clients in London and Europe. We also work with a wide range of FinTech start-ups.

An increasing number of our clients work with our Investment Management Division on an exclusive basis, thanks to the proven quality of service we provide.

Creating teams that deliver

Our clients often require people with a rare blend of expertise, experience and personal skills. We provide a thorough search and selection approach which involves networking across the sector to identify potential candidates who may not be actively looking for a new role, but who may be open to the right career move. This way we ensure we can supply the best candidates in the entire marketplace.

An important aspect of our approach is to build strong relationships with clients and candidates. We aim to meet each hiring manager to discuss their unique requirements. Face-to-face meetings with candidates also help us to accurately assess their needs, their aims and potential. In this way, we provide a superior level of service to all concerned.

Needless to say, we treat our duty of care to clients and candidates with the greatest of respect.
