Because long-term relationships lead to deep talent insights

In the investment banking world, deal activity within vertical markets is making this hyper-competitive sector even more difficult to manage. Long-steady talent pipelines are thinning, raising the stakes as banks contend for a smaller pool of candidates with the energy, product knowledge, and transferable relationships to drive expected performance and growth. Capital markets, a sector with very minimal hiring and significant automation over the last decade, has finally realized the need to replenish its ranks and replace a missing generation of talent. And with FinTechs nipping at their heels, payment innovation surging, and a generation of iconic talent nearing end of career, global transaction banks continue to hire, both from their banking competitors and from new talent pools.

With deep experience serving clients ranging from global banks to national investment banks and boutiques, we are adept at assessing diverse financial professionals for their commercial skills, as well as their creativity, ingenuity, and cultural fit. Like the candidates we place, our consultants leverage close relationships and deep industry expertise across global practices to share highly customized insights into top talent across a wide range of senior management roles, specialist teams, and individual contributors.
