Risk Management

Barclay Simpson Executive Search Inc. has one of the most established risk recruitment teams globally with a proven track record across all functions of risk management.

In the United States Risk is top of the agenda for Chief Executives and this seems set to continue as regulatory change has become the “new normal” since the financial crisis. All financial services firms are required to have a Chief Risk Officer on their board of directors, and in turn there has been a requirement to build out Risk functions at all levels. Risk Management has therefore experienced a recruitment push across the board, with a heavy emphasis on growing out central risk teams across all disciplines.

Our capability expands across all of these functional areas of Risk including Market Risk; Quantitative/Model Risk; Credit Risk; and Operational Risk. From our Midtown Manhattan offices our Risk recruitment team work on mandates at all levels across all Risk verticals, and our local expertise is supplemented by our global Risk team which operates out of our offices covering the U.K., Europe and the Middle East. As in all Barclay Simpson markets, our consultants are specialists in their field with deep specialist knowledge of the Risk Management industry.  

We operate on both a contract and permanent basis and across all sectors in banking and finance services, including Investment Banking & Capital Markets, Consumer Banking, Asset Management, and with Insurance and Fintech firms. Our team places candidates from AVP through to Managing Director and Global Heads of Department on a contingent and retained basis.
