More than ever, the Financial Services sector requires leaders who can quickly adapt to change and understand how to deal with the global pressures of the financial crisis and its aftermath. Doing so while maintaining high profitability and a positive image of the Financial Services companies they work for is key.
Traditional financial institutions are facing increased competition from vibrant new entrants. As evidence, global investment in Fintech has grown exponentially - from AUD $1.3 billion in 2008 to over AUD $16.8 billion in 2014. And investment is expected to have doubled in 2015.
Financial services is a prime area for technological innovation, from the ways in which people save their money, to how they spend it, to the tools they use to invest it – all of these modus operandi are changing more rapidly today than ever before, in every continent.
Structural, regulatory changes and industry consolidation are driving further need for executives who can think clearly about new market opportunities and the transition to the next growth phase. Amrop Carmichael Fisher has recruited executives at every level and position within the Financial Services industry around the world. From NEDs, CEOs, Chief Customer Officers, CFOs, COOs, CMOs to CIOs at:
Using our Context Driven approach to executive search, we find the global-level executives that would find themselves at home in New York, London, Zurich or Singapore, who, at the same time, are an ideal fit for our clients' local requirements / local context. We help inform candidates about our clients' firms, building a comfort level in this crisis environment, and work with you to set expectations and shape the opportunity.
Working closely with our clients, we can help set the foundation for growth that will inevitably follow the end of this particular part of the business and economic cycle.
