In line with its focus on key revenue producing and management positions in the financial services industry, NMG is proud of its industry knowledge and track record of placements in these areas:

Corporate and Investment Banking

Trends in the world of corporate finance are for global clients to increasingly expect to speak with their banker about the full range of corporate finance services, from M&A advice to transaction banking. Banks are responding by consolidating their corporate and investment banking platforms and fostering internal collaboration to provide advisory, underwriting and credit extension as seamlessly as possible.

Although possessing distinct skill sets, corporate and investment bankers must understand the value of one another’s business and have a strategic view of a client’s financial advisory needs. NMG’s recruitment consultants come from both the corporate and investment banking worlds, and work with clients and candidates across a gamut of products, from strategic advisory, capital markets and underwriting through to credit and lending and financial structuring.

Global Markets

Banks’ core area of securities sales, trading and structuring is still under severe regulatory and capital pressure several years after the global financial crisis. Management is challenged to produce the best possible return on capital, in a market where the products and services most in demand may shift from quarter to quarter and year to year. This requires constant fine-tuning of front-line talent as well as the talent bench. NMG consultants speak the language of the markets, and can help find the staff you need for tomorrow’s business as well as todays.

Investment Management

The growth of alternative investment vehicles, including their resurgence after the global financial crisis, is one of the biggest stories in the financial markets. Over the past 5 years, traditional and alternative investment firms have grown to constitute some 50% of NMG’s annual business. Consequently NMG has developed knowledge of products and individual’s skill-sets that set us apart as a recruiter of analytical and investment skills in a range of products and markets.
