Top family office recruiters have a lot to consider in ensuring that the kind of talent that they provide to their clientele meets both the technical and cultural capacities that are required. From wealth management to succession planning and beyond, family offices have a critical role to play in the future of their clients and they can only do that successfully if they have the right people driving the charge.
To this end, a family office executive search, for example, cannot be a simple cookie-cutter recruitment process. Instead, executive leadership and everyone below need to have the right attitude as well as the qualifications necessary to deliver the kind of value that both the wealth management firm and its customers are looking for.
What Is Essential in Family Office Recruitment?
Remember that for family offices to do what they do well, there needs to be a long-term view of each family’s needs to ensure that the assets in question can be grown efficiently over time.
Therefore, whether it is we’re serving single-family or multi-family offices, we need to ensure that the candidates that we put forward at The Quest Organization fit that mold.
This will require the highest of standards that the industry has to offer since goal alignment with the family office is non-negotiable. It takes a lot of effort and there is no getting around that. Family office recruitment consultants need to be ready, willing, and able to put in that effort using an airtight process to deliver the results that are expected.
We employ a consultative approach in the truest sense before the search begins. That’s because there is an uncompromising need to understand both the micro and macro elements of the business, how it works, where the gaps are, expectations of human capital, and more.
A Tailored Solution Serves Family Offices Better Than a Generic One
What we said above feeds directly into this. Sure, a family office is a family office at the end of the day, meaning that at a fundamental level, there is a set of services that family members expect to get from any engagement with one.
However, this does not mean that the way that the services are delivered will always be identical. There may be minute differences that provide a level of competitive advantage in the market. These kinds of differences don’t come out of thin air.
They require an acute awareness of risk management, a proven track record of yielding positive results, and a host of relevant industry expertise. All this needs to come in a package with a person who fits into the family office’s operational style.
That’s the kind of thought process that we need to employ and ensure that we are taking specific steps to ensure that any candidate put forward is a perfect fit for our client.
Support For Single-family Office and Multi-family Office Environments
We offer family office recruiting services to both single-family office and multi-family office clients. We understand that both will be looking to us to provide superior talent that can provide the kind of leadership that is needed in the current landscape of the industry.
What Does Our Proven Process of Vetting Family Office Professionals Look Like?
It would be very difficult to explain the entire process here. However, we can highlight some of the most important elements to give some clarity on some of the pieces that we prioritize.
The screening and selection process that we use is very specific. It’s not just a matter of good resumes that demonstrate a certain skill set. While this is undoubtedly important, we are highly concerned with what the fit for the company looks like. It’s an intense process that we deem necessary for you to be able to have faith that all the work has been done and you have received the perfect candidate.
Reference and background checks will be a part of this as we need to know who we are dealing with and who it is exactly that we are expecting you to assimilate into your organization. Yes, companies must maintain a safe and healthy work environment, but there is also a part of that resting with the candidates themselves.
Industry knowledge and market insights are also an essential piece of the puzzle. There need to be competitor analyses, understanding the latest trends, ensuring that talent acquisition is done in a currently relevant fashion, etc.
We Offer Both Recruitment and Consulting Services
It’s not just about recruitment though that is essential for obvious reasons. As you’ll note, the narrative that has been pushed here is understanding your company and its needs. Some clients will simply engage us for that side of things.
Sure, we are incredibly adept at ensuring that the kind of talent that can drive success is available. At the same time, however, we have a lot of insight into how family offices work. We’re more than a search firm.
Therefore, if you’re looking for a consultant who can help you through the process of establishing a new family office or even restructuring the one that you currently have, we can assist with that too. Perhaps there are elements such as developing an exit strategy or developing best practices that are meant to be specific areas of focus.
Upfront Pricing Is a Plus
Our family office services need to fit your budget for you to use them and we understand that. Before any work is done, we will provide you with upfront pricing so you can consider your budget.
