Finding the right executive for an important position in banking, and particularly in the specialized field of wealth management, can make or break an organization’s performance. Unfilled positions and failed new-hires can cost an organization money and momentum and undermine their status in the marketplace.

Meanwhile, the task of identifying top talent gets harder all the time. A declining number of mid-career workers, fewer younger workers entering the workforce and a rapid growth in workers above the age of 55 are all contributing to a talent gap. Furthermore, with the walls separating the various financial services firms tumbling down, banks, brokerage firms, insurance companies, money managers and others are all searching for the same talent.

Fins are back in style. Not the Cadillac fins from the 1950s – we’re talking about financial technology, better known as fintech. According to Fintech Weekly (yes, there is a publication and website devoted to the sector) fintech aims to provide financial services by making use of software and modern technology.
And the traditional financial industry is taking note – a recent panel of the New York Society of Security Analysts was devoted to fintech.
“Five years ago, venture capital totaled $5 billion in fintech. In the last two years, it has reached $20 billion globally,” Justin Brownhill, managing partner of SenaHill Partners LP, said at the panel. “The breakdown is divided equally between Silicon Valley, New York City, Europe and the rest of the world.
