We are an international executive search firm

About Us



In addition to traditional Buy-Side Executive Search services we have an excellent track-record in executing investment team lift-outs, connecting investors with seed capital, completing search for equity with early stage venture backed startups, and providing classic executive search intelligence projects, including market maps, competitor intelligence reports, market-entry studies and salary benchmarking studies.

Market coverage

Since our formation in 2014 we have built an excellent track-record across liquid asset classes including Commodities, Equities, Quant Strategies, Macro and Credit, as well as in Private Equity and Infrastructure Investment markets.

We are one of the few executive Buy-Side Executive Search firms in the market that simultaneously delivers lateral senior-level investment and trading talent with a track record, while also providing thorough on- and off-cycle associate search work for our Hedge Fund and Private Equity clientele.

We engage with our clients on both a retained and contingent-exclusive basis, and are most effective partnering with clients who strive to proactively hire superior performers in highly-competitive markets.

Our value add

We offer our candidates a pathway to leading buy-side and merchant trading organizations. To clients, we provide access to investment talent with an edge.

By working attentively with a select, closely-held client base, we have built an understanding of what differentiates each firm’s investment process and performance metrics. As such, we are well-placed to evaluate and identify individuals who have the nuanced skillset to transition successfully and add lasting value to our clients.
