An article has been published by GoBuyside, the nation’s leading recruitment firm for entities operating in the financial sector, exploring in-depth the current difficulties that undermine the ability of investment management firms to recruit specialized talent, and providing solutions to help address and neutralize these difficulties.

One of the major issues addressed in the article is the challenge of recruiting in a market that has been irreversibly affected by “disruptive technologies”. The article suggests that it is imperative on entities within the financial sector to shed their reputation for continued, perhaps stubborn, reliance on outdated and legacy technology, instead pushing for technological innovation and inventiveness within the industry. With the expectations of industry executives and human resources experts consistently growing, the continued use of legacy technology and obsolete recruiting practices by recruitment firms will inevitably lead to those firms consistently falling short of what is expected, and failing to effectively address recruiting challenges.
The solution presented by GoBuyside was for the contracting of investment management recruiting partners that aim not only to overcome the issues caused by disruptive technologies, but to employ such technologies to their advantage. The article makes sure to point out that, in reality, only very few recruiting partners are capable of this. Read more about GoBuyside at inspirery.com.
