Over 20 years in fintech executive search & recruitment
Since 1999, Excelsior Search has been a partner building high-performance teams for financial technology (fintech), data and research providers to the global capital markets and investment industry. Excelsior Search has supported the growth of immense technological change over the past two decades, using our deep niche industry and global talent acquisition expertise to help our clients build top-quality teams across the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific.
To successfully challenge in a highly competitive global industry, we appreciate that our clients need the best available talent for their businesses, and our mission is to ensure we secure that talent for our clients. Being a niche market specialist is one thing, but we go beyond that – we are masters of our trade, skilled in targeting, approaching, engaging and closing the interest of candidates globally. This ability is what sets us apart from both the generalist blue chip executive search firms and the wider recruitment market.
Fintech company types we partner with
The companies we partner with are providers to the global capital markets and investment industry. They work with investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds, PE / VC firms, brokers and exchanges, providing:
Front, middle and back office technology solutions and related services
Data, news, financial analysis and investment research
Besides the providers themselves, we also partner with other organisations developing the fintech ecosystem, including private equity and venture capital firms, banks and fintech hubs and innovation centres.
The competitive nature of the fintech sector means that demand exceeds supply across most company functions and at all levels for the highest performing individuals. Excelsior offers a ‘total solution’, using search to pro-actively seek out the best talent across all functional areas and career levels.
Global reach & network
Given the global nature of the finance industry, we have developed a proven international search capability that meets the local needs of our clients in the main financial centres across North & South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific.
All our consultants are experienced in international search. As well as the truly global candidate network we’ve built up, we also appreciate the cultural nuances needed for successful candidate engagement around the world. In addition, because we understand their business culture and candidate selection criteria so well, our clients find it a painless process using us to quickly and effectively recruit in new countries. A trusted partner with global reach is a more reliable route to success than new and unproven local recruiters.
New York, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, São Paulo, London, Paris, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Vienna, Dubai, Cape Town, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney… these are just a few of the cities we’ve had experience of recruiting in.
Expert executive search & recruitment processes
We are masters of our discipline; well-trained and professional recruiters who apply best-practice executive search and recruitment processes to every assignment. Through use of our proprietary search service fintechSTAR, our clients are guaranteed ‘star’ candidate delivery, as well as a seamless service that provides executives with peace of mind and security for hiring quickly and cost-effectively.
