Banking & Financial Services

Our in-house banking and financial services team in London totals 6 recruiters covering both the permanent and interim markets.

We recruit for the vast majority of the major global investment and retail/commercial banks, together with a wide array of insurance companies (life and pension, general commercial/retail and Lloyds insurers/reinsurers), asset management firms, private equity houses, brokerages, exchanges, clearing houses, trading platforms, financial services providers, wealth management firms, IFAs, regulatory bodies, professional services firms and payment providers.

We have a wealth of experience of sourcing candidates across the wide range of specialisms prevalent in these sectors. These include general banking, leveraged finance, asset finance, trade and commodity finance, derivatives, structured products, prime brokerage, debt and equity capital markets, securitisation, high yield debt, distressed debt, corporate trust, restructuring, private equity/venture capital, private wealth management, funds, regulatory, consumer finance, consumer credit, and insurance (corporate, retail and litigation).

We recruit qualified lawyers at all levels, from newly qualified to Head of Department/General Counsel. We also recruit paralegals, legal executives, company secretaries, and derivatives documentation negotiators.

Due to the growing demand for derivatives documentation specialists over the past few years from our banking and financial services clients, we have developed a specialism in this particular area. We recruit negotiators of ISDA master, CSA, commodity, stock lending (GMSLA) and repo (GMRA) agreements across all levels up to and including Head of Documentation.

In addition to recruitment services, we produce tailored publications for the banking and financial services sectors: an in-house banking salary guide, an in-house financial services salary guide, and a documentation negotiator guide.
