Asset Management

Specialist Recruiters of Asset Management, Hedge Fund and Investment professionals

We help firms succeed and grow, by helping secure senior leaders and strategic hires for Asset Managers and global financial services organisations.


Asset Management Defined

Asset management is the process of managing a portfolio of investments such as stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments. It primarily focuses on ensuring that assets generate a return on investment for clients (Corporate, Institutional and High Net Worth) while minimizing loss exposure.

It uses diversification, rebalancing, and risk management strategies to help clients achieve their desired returns.

Asset managers monitor markets to identify new opportunities and manage portfolios accordingly.

They advise which investments are best for a particular individual or company based on the client’s goals and risk tolerance. They may offer different products such as mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), real estate investments, derivatives, and commodities.

Additionally, asset managers may provide advisory services such as risk management, portfolio construction and review, performance monitoring, and tax optimization.

The sectors of industry we operate on within Asset Management are detailed below:

Hedge Funds
Mutual Funds
Securities Brokerage & Trading
Real Estate

Alternative Investments
Investment Advisory

FINCO Search provides a comprehensive suite of Recruitment Search and Selection services across all executive and strategic roles within the Wealth Management sector globally.

Guaranteed Search Methodology

Working with FINCO Search takes away the uncertainty and unpredictability of output that a standard recruitment firm delivers by presenting tailored retained search and selection services through unrivalled data mapping techniques. 

We believe the contingency market can often represent an over-brokered and under-serviced recruitment model that leads to speed over quality and often a race to the bottom in respect of delivery. 

Our retained search solution offers our clients a full partnership on strategic and critical hires where we take the full responsibility of getting the right candidate on the desk in a time-efficient manner.

What’s more we also guarantee each hire for 12-months to each of our select clients in the Asset Management sector.  

FINCO Search is a specialist in recruitment project mapping/project management and offer a full 360 degree managed recruitment service, taking ownership of advertising, sourcing, candidate negotiations and on-boarding.   

FINCO Search operates on a strict framework and workflow for our clients utilising our retained search function.  Prior to any search taking place, we take time to understand our client’s business structure, culture and what makes them tick to ensure that we are not only resourcing the best talent in the market, but that we are screening our candidates on a fit way beyond their CV.  A true recruitment partner must be able to extend a brand as though they are one, and only with a true understanding of the brand can they begin to provide a true value added and suitable recruitment solution. 

Our retained searches consist of an end to end, consultative and surgical level approach. Let us be clear; retained searches guarantee a dedicated consultant and headhunter/researcher, specific to your firm and hire, until we have placed the position with you.  

Our consultants are proud to have a 100% fill rate on retained searches.

For an exploratory discussion around your specific requirements you can speak to an expert advisor in confidence.  You will be directed to a partner who knows the relevant market information to your sector.

FINCO Search will then deliver to you a suitable proposal for review after an initial Teams consultation with all interested stakeholders.

Here at FINCO Search we are retained by our clients to work on an exclusive and confidential basis. 

That often means that with certain clients, we are representing opportunities with them that are not in the public domain for confidentiality reasons.

We predominantly reach out to candidates directly for mandates that we are working on and only advertise roles to ensure our clients have full visibility of the talent landscape for shortlisting.  

Once engaged on a particular position we support all candidates throughout the recruitment process providing a full briefing on the opportunity, the company and all of the people involved in the hiring process. 

Our personalised approach ensures we are best fit for Asset Management professionals looking for their next career move.

If you are interested in being considered for existing or future mandates in the UK or internationally then please call us now on +44 (0) 203 927 5080 or register your CV online here and one of our Specialist Recruitment Search Consultants will contact you ASAP.

Interest-rate swaps are a tool used by big cities, major corporations and sovereign governments to manage their debt, and the scale of their use is almost unimaginably massive. It's about a $379 trillion market, meaning that any manipulation would affect a pile of assets about 100 times the size of the United States federal budget.
