Investment Management

Asset management firms and hedge funds are emerging from the financial crisis, but still face regulatory challenges to their business models driven by the responses of the regulators. Falling assets have given rise to clients demanding simpler, more transparent, risk averse investments, which in turn have seen a decline in yield.

Typically, our investment management clients are focused on maintaining their business, restoring operating performance and repositioning the operation for the future.

We advise a range of clients from family offices through to the largest asset managers, helping them assess and recruit the best-in-class portfolio managers and investment officers to support activities across the full spectrum of traditional and alternative asset classes.

With offices in major financial centres we are able to conduct complex and demanding cross border and cross sector searches. Areas of expertise include investments, product, client relationship, distribution and marketing positions, as well as functionally aligned roles working in conjunction with the business. Engagements typically include portfolio managers, CIOs, CFOs and other senior leadership roles.
