Financial Services

Across financial services, the war for talent is intensifying. Faced with multifaceted change driven by a tsunami of regulation and rapid advances in technology, firms are competing hard to attract talented business leaders – whether CEOs, divisional MDs or NEDs – or functional leaders specialising in finance, human capital, risk, compliance, operations or technology.

Understanding The Intricacies

But while the challenge around talent is common across the industry, its implications vary widely. This is where Redgrave comes in. Our decades of experience, trusted relationships and close collaboration with clients – from PLCs to mutuals, and from private equity houses to overseas-owned subsidiaries – means we understand the industry intricacies like no other.

Whether we’re filling a well-established position or a role that didn’t exist before, we know how to identify talent with the skills to lead. As an executive search firm focused on growth, we’ll work hard to win you as a client, and even harder to deliver quality results. This means being passionate about your long-term success, and applying our deep market understanding and industry insight to advise clients on the optimal strategy. And we’ve got the confidence to challenge the brief if unrealistic.

The Results Speak For Themselves

In 2021 alone, we led 15% of all external CEO appointments across our core segments in the industry. And we’re market leaders in helping appoint women to divisional MD roles – strengthening the next generation of female CEOs.

Our deeply human and adaptable approach is underpinned by our personal connectivity to the market. We understand the complexities of what are, in some cases, fairly unique roles and where to find great people to fill them. We always prioritise outcomes over process – and are inspired by the opportunity to deliver for you. This is why most of our clients come back to us time and again.
