Buy-Side Executive Search

Executive search is Altus Partners’ principal practice. We have a successful track-record in identifying those individuals who outperform their peer group. Coverage includes:

  • Private Equity
  • Hedge Funds
  • Fund Finance & Operations
  • Portfolio Finance and Strategy

Our process

We follow a research-led model of executive search, tailored to each client’s needs. This could include a business consultation and review, full market-map, leadership planning, psychometric testing, technical testing, as well as 90-day planning for new employees. Our clients have the ability to pick all or a few of these to best suit their requirements.

Our experience

We have carried out hundreds of successful searches since we were established in 2009, ensuring that you have a partner who knows their market and understands the nuances of the industry.

Our training

We are qualified users of the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), allowing us to add more tangible candidate evaluation alongside our many years of experience. This psychometric assessment suite has been developed over 35 years, and we believe gives a highly insightful view of factors that sometimes may not be obvious in the first instance. The HPI defines peoples’ so-called ‘bright-side’ character traits – essentially the manner of their interpersonal interactions in optimal circumstances. Considering how much companies habitually invest into the individuals whom they hire, it makes sense to ensure that they have the best possible opportunities for integration.

Our view 

Our view is always a long-term one. We work with a select client-base, whom we know intrinsically, and who value us as a trusted partner. Through this commitment, we have built a track-record of repeated successes for each relationship.
