A steady flow of hiring from our clients seeking to add talent to Continental European offices continues in response to Brexit. A positive consequence for headhunters such as ourselves who have strong track records of hiring talent across Europe.
Brexit will push more than half of asset managers to increase headcounts in locations outside of the UK over the next five years. That is according to State Street's 2018 fund strategy survey, which collected the views of 250 asset managers globally. When asked about future planning, one-fifth of respondents said they had already taken action to hire new people.
