Asset Management Recruiters Target Hedge Fund Glen Point Capital

By: SBWire

London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2022 -- When the proposed merger between Glen Point Capital and Eisler Capital looked set to collapse, this immediately caught the attention of asset management recruiters in the UK and beyond. The failed merger has made Glen Point a new target for asset management recruiters in London, particularly as the firm has a history of recruiting from big banks like Citi and the calibre of talent within the business is known to be high. As a result, it's no longer Credit Suisse that is the target for headhunters in this industry but Glen Point Capital. The firm was originally established in 2015 and began life as a globally macro fund with strategies encompassing other areas such as emerging market fixed income. It was supposed to be completing the merger with Eisler Capital in March of this year and no reason has been given publicly as to why the deal didn't go through.

The team at Selby Jennings said, "Little did we know that the pandemic would spark a new chapter for financial services. From ever-evolving regulations, mercurial consumer expectations, digital transformation, to the heightened competition from incumbents and new entrants, financial services verticals evolved at lightning speed – all while in a stage of poised recovery with the need to future-proof operations from additional disruption.

Alongside challenges brought on by the pandemic, financial services in 2021 were gripped by the wider political and socio-economic context that was Brexit, as banks and financial institutions packed their bags to move some, or all, of their operations to cities across Europe. However, Financial Services were one of the few bright spots of the past year, providing fuel to the economy and scaling up in a time where many sectors wouldn't take the risk. 2022 is already shaping up to be a record-breaking year in terms of talent movement, and we can't wait to help clients secure that world-class talent."
