Our Markets  |  Buy Side  |  Institutional & Retail Fund Managers

Cornwallis Elt has an outstanding track record of recruiting for Fund Managers of every shape and size from highly targeted investment boutiques to the world’s largest institutional managers. Our largest clients have several trillion dollars worth of assets under management and employ thousands of employees responsible for hundreds of funds across all major asset classes and operating out of multiple locations. We recognize that the challenges faced in such a business will be very different to those of a small investment house with a dozen employees supporting one fund. Therefore our Consultants use an adaptive and consultative methodology to make sure that the service we provide fits the needs of your organization.

Correspondingly we have worked on projects from a few man days through to major systems or business change projects on a global scale. Examples of projects for which we have recruited include:

  • Mergers and business / systems integrations
  • New fund launches and fund acquisitions
  • Implementations of new systems (front to back office)
  • Platforms across all major asset classes; Equities, Fixed Income, Derivatives, Money Markets, FX, Cash, Commodities, Property, Private Equity
  • Retail products across ISAs, Unit and Investment Trusts, OEICs, SIPPs, Life & Pensions
  • New business operating models
  • Outsourcing projects
  • Supporting growth into new geographies or market sectors
  • Client Reporting, Performance and Distribution
  • Risk and Portfolio Modelling
  • Straight Through Processing and full trade lifecycle
  • Data projects
  • Infrastructure refreshes and upgrades
  • Regulatory change and governance
  • Service delivery and BAU support

As well as our extensive experience in technology focused recruitment, we have also expanded significantly into business, operational and change roles. We have delivered to retained mandates for Heads of Department and recruited for every layer of the business and technology for projects and BAU roles on a contingent basis.
