​​The asset management industry is broken and we are focused on fixing it

The asset management sector has been seriously affected by the events of the last three turbulent years. This is not just the result of a profitability crisis, but more a reflection of deep structural issues affecting the core beliefs of the segment. There are signs of recovery amid the turbulence. Providing education, research and interaction amongst our clients is the best way to keep everyone up to speed. You will find our professionals available at your service any time and we are frequently attending or speaking at industry events where the deals get done.
























How are we different?

We see our work as an amazing opportunity to redesign how traditional investment firms operate and staff. We’ve combined the loy-al, entrepreneurial spirit of a boutique shop with the stability of an institutional executive search environment. In the end, our clients end up with teams focused on alpha generation, exceptional client service and returns with a unique wrapper of individual care and attention and deep innovation from their executive search partner. Our clients believe in this owner/ operator model enough to have worked with us to solve numerous executive search challenges over the years. We operate at all times on behalf of our clients in the way we would want done for us prioritizing by profitability our resources to deliver the best risk adjusted results.

Industry Relationships: Through our efforts, we have established deep relationships with executive level professionals across hedge funds, hedge funds of funds, mutual funds, industry service providers, banks and other financial firms. Pinnacle Careers harnesses these relationships to provide a competitive advantage in executing our search engagements with maximum speed and efficiency.

Integrated Team Approach: Pinnacle Careers fully leverages our intellectual knowledge base through our proprietary database, deep industry contacts and firm-wide collaboration. Over the years we have made a concentrated effort to build a highly professional team of executive recruiters with broad-ranging advisory expertise and search execution methodology. Our clients recognize that we offer a collaborative understanding of their hiring objectives to provide successful solutions to all search assignments.

Candidate In-flows: Given our investment management specialization, we are often a “first contact” among industry professionals looking to make a career transition. Candidates recognize that our senior staff operates with integrity, prudence and a vision towards creating long-term relationships. On behalf of our clients, we continually refresh our candidate pool with high quality professionals who are open to new challenges and responsibilities.

Evaluation: Pinnacle Careers takes an in-depth approach to candidate identification and evaluation giving us the proven ability to assess and recommend qualified professionals. Our senior recruiters have interviewed and partnered with thousands of investment industry executives and provide an informed and detailed description of their professional attributes when advising clients on selecting the right talent. Pinnacle Careers has developed a global perspective on the specific skills and attributes that define top performing investment industry executives, with the goal of constantly improving the hiring process for our clients.​
