The markets you could step into:

Identifying and delivering candidates who directly generate revenue or develop new strategies. Buy-side investment refers to the process of investing money on behalf of individuals, institutions, or companies in financial assets such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and other securities. The primary objective of buy-side investment is to make profitable decisions that will increase the value of the investment portfolio over time. Buy-side investors are the ones who "buy" these assets with the intention of holding them for the long term, as opposed to selling them quickly for short-term gains. They typically include entities like mutual funds, pension funds, hedge funds, insurance companies, and even individual investors. .

This area focuses on identifying and delivering candidates who directly manage the operational, legal, compliance and finance processes to provide the most robust infrastructure for their buy-side clients rather than candidates who are actually generating revenue.

Asset Raising & Retention
Asset raising and retention refer to the process of attracting and keeping investors' money or funds within a financial institution or investment management company.
