Financial Services

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 positive image of the Financial Services companies they work for is key.

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 has recruited executives at every level and position within the Financial Services industry around the world. From Presidents, CFOs, COOs, CMOs, CIOs at:

  • Insurance companies
  • Retail banks
  • Corporate banks
  • Investment banks
  • Private equity.

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.
