Risk is widely known for its technically elaborate nature. The breadth and depth of specialism practiced and sought in this segment of the financial services industry often causes challenges for the typical talent acquisition process, whilst increasing regulation, remuneration and global mobility further extend the shortage of active and visible talent.

Governed by ex-industry market practitioners and Senior Risk Managers, we are experienced in the subject matter and technical nature of roles, whilst also cognizant of the type of personal qualities required to effectively perform functions at a higher level. Leveraging this, we offer a comprehensive pre-screening and qualification process, which endeavours to bridge the knowledge gap between hiring manager requirements and the typical recruitment process, without relying on 'CV buzz words'.

Our team has over a decade of relevant experience, gained with leading financial institutions including HSBC, RBS, Big Four Advisory and well established boutique Investment Houses and Hedge Funds, including GLG Partners, Man Group and Permal. Aside from deep market knowledge of covered areas, we have access to direct industry networks, business school alumni and variety of industry specific resources, which enhance our visibility of the marketplace and add further weight to our offering.
