We are honoured and proud at Rutherford to have partnered with top clients within the Financial Services space. The examples below give a better overview of our modus operandi when it comes to delivering the best recruitment services in the field.
The Client: Large Institutional Asset Manager
Mandate: Chief Compliance Officer
Challenge: Effect Meaningful Cultural Change
Specific Requirements: Our client’s previous CCO had been in position for 13 years and senior management was looking to reinvigorate the function challenging a feeling of business complacency without causing dramatic fallout. This client was a trustee-led business with a fundamental risk aversion seeking a CCO who engendered deep trust.
Referees: General Counsel, London. HR Manager, London.
The Client: Largest interdealer broker in the world
Mandate: EMEA Head of Risk & Compliance, based in London
Challenge: The broker has a very distinct and robust business culture which contrasted with a conservative senior management.
Specific Requirements: Our client was looking for a CF10 who could liaise seamlessly between broker and board, who would also be responsible for oversight of the compliance function in EMEA. This position reported directly to the COO and was ultimately responsible for compliance, regulator and risk matters relating to the business. They were looking for a very specific profile: someone with resilience, commerciality and comfortable with liaising at the very highest levels.
Referee: Global Head of HR, London.
The Client: A Global Stock Exchange
Mandate: EMEA Head of Regulatory Affairs & Legal, based in London.
Challenge: The client required a finely-balanced mix of Legal and Compliance experience.
Specific Requirements: Our client was fundamentally looking for someone who could carry a dual role, balancing oversight of compliance and including the managing of its commercial counsel, who was primary responsible for corporate, contracts and employee matters.
Referees: EMEA Head of Human Resources, London. EMEA COO, London.
The Client: Large Global Hedge Fund
Mandate: Global Head of Legal, Risk & Compliance
Challenge: Finding a candidate that would become a future Partner
Specific Requirements: Our client’s previous CCO/GC had lasted two years. They were now looking for a compliance officer with staying power and huge commerciality with a view to making them a Partner in one year. The individual had to have the finesse and force of personality to manage relationships with their Fund Managers.
Referees: Global Head of HR, London. Chief Risk Officer, London. COO, London.
