Areas of Specialization

We typically work with buy-side investment management and research teams that take a multi-asset approach or that have a top-down, macro bias. We are also happy to work with firms that do not have a multi-asset team, provided that the roles in a question have a multi-asset or macro focus. An example would be a private wealth management firm where the PMs manage segregated multi-asset mandates for clients. Additionally, we are very well positioned to build out teams at macro hedge funds.

In terms of roles, we specialize in CIOs, Strategists, PMs, Analysts, Economists, and other similar front-office positions.

We do not actively work with sell-side firms, however we have a good understanding of the available talent on the sell-side and we actively use these firms as a source of quality candidates.

Capabilites

Multi-Asset

We are well positioned to work with teams across the multi-asset spectrum. Our network includes strategists and analysts that specialize in single asset class coverage (such as an FX strategist within a multi-asset strategy team), as well as multi-asset generalists, including portfolio managers, analysts, strategists, fund selectors, and CIOs.

Global Macro

Naturally, there is a large macro element to most roles in the multi-asset space. As a result, we are comfortable sourcing top talent for investment and research-focused roles within the global macro hedge fund community. We also have relationships with macro sales people in London and New York, primarily in the independent research space.

Fixed Income

Within fixed income, we cover portfolio managers, strategists and analysts. We are happy to work with fixed income teams, as well as multi-asset teams that are looking to add a fixed income strategist or a portfolio manager with a fixed income bias. We also have access to a small network of credit analysts (IG and HY) in London, although this is not our core area of focus.

Global Equities

We have relationships with top-down equity sector strategists and regional equity strategists. For bottom-up focused roles, we have partnered with another leading search firm so that we can provide the best possible service to our clients.
