Global presence, local expertise.
Korn Ferry’s global Wealth Management Sector provides talent management solutions to help clients attract, develop, and retain best-in-class leaders. We have a strong presence across the key financial centers worldwide, whether in the US, Asia, Middle East, Continental Europe, or the UK. Within each location, our experienced specialists work with the world’s leading organizations to help them accurately identify leader potential, drive development, accelerate readiness, and energize transitions. Our seasoned consultants have an average of fifteen years of search experience serving wealth management clients in financial hubs such as London, New York, Zurich, Dubai, Singapore, and Hong Kong. We focus primarily on C-suite positions in management, investments, sales and marketing, legal and compliance, technology, and operations. The solutions we offer include competency based assessments, leadership development programs, one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.
New developments in a changing world.
The global financial crisis has changed the way companies look at the world, especially in the financial and banking industry. With increasing emphasis on risk and compliance, the manner in which business is conducted has been greatly affected — including P&L, cost-to-income ratio, remuneration, attracting and retaining key staff, and, importantly, how to develop a sustainable, profitable, and growing business. Asia-Pacific, one of the fastest developing regions in terms of high net worth individuals, has attracted attention across the globe. Since 2009, Korn Ferry has aimed to objectively capture developments in this region by conducting extensive surveys within the wealth management industry. Specifically, we target C-suite and senior executives in this sector on an annual basis to probe trends that are taking place, with the goal of identifying and anticipating market, compensation, and demographic movements. Tougher regulatory requirements, the effect of geopolitical issues on financial markets, the shift from international offshore toward onshore platforms, as well as increasing technological advances play important roles in the market's development. Leaders must be able to steer the business through today's difficulties and tomorrow's challenges.
Korn Ferry consultants leverage their extensive market experience and relationships across all levels and business functions. We are the only firm that can identify, assess, and develop internal and external talent through engaging, proven solutions that meet and exceed the expectations of today’s sophisticated wealth management professionals.
