We offer a full range of talent solutions designed to address Investment Banking and Capital Market talent needs — from strategic executive search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.
Regulatory scrutiny demands a more intense focus on talent and rewards.
As the future of financial services continues to sort and evolve, enhanced regulatory scrutiny and a focus on compensation and incentives have intensified the necessity for more nuanced and thoughtful leaders. Not only are regulators significantly more involved in overseeing rewards and structures, but Boards of Directors have an enhanced obligation to demonstrate systematic and sustainable approaches to rewards that benefit shareholders as well as the global financial system. Today’s financial services professionals must embody a diverse and rare combination of skill sets, including high integrity, collegiality, creativity, commitment to excellence, and entrepreneurialism. As competition for talent and margins increase, securing a strong and committed team is an essential business strategy.
