We’re very proud of Adam Harwood and Victor Tang for being featured on Business Insider as top headhunters that specialize in quant trading.
Adam joined The Execu|Search Group in 2014, and today as a Vice President on our Financial Services team, oversees our Front Office search practice. His team specializes in the recruitment of traders, salespeople, quantitative researchers, and portfolio managers across the sell and buy-side. While they work on an array of assets and fundamental strategies, about half of their placements are systematic. Victor is a Managing Director on Adam’s team who specializes in Quantitative/Systematic Markets. Since joining Execu|Search in 2016, he has played an integral role in building out our systematic trading and data science specialty area.
“As our clients continue to evolve to a more technically driven investment approach, we have done the same by hiring recruiters to focus specifically on that skill set,” says Adam. “Making this list is a testament to our commitment to providing high-level, customizable services for a range of global customers. ”
Here is an excerpt from the Business Insider article:
While The Execu|Search Group has been around since 1985, Wall Street power players weren’t in its wheelhouse. But that changed in 2014, when the firm brought aboard Adam Harwood to build a business focused on front-office revenue-generating finance roles.
Harwood, a vice president, now oversees a team of about 10 front-office headhunters covering the sell side and buy side. While his group isn’t solely focused on the quant space — it works on an array of asset classes and fundamental strategies — about half its placements are systematic. Harwood’s team fills mandates for algorithmic traders from the associate level up to managing directors and portfolio managers at investment banks, proprietary traders, and hedge funds, as well as niche players.
Victor Tang, a managing director on Harwood’s team who oversees a handful of consultants, has also built a reputation as a strong recruiter focused solely on quantitative searches across research, trading, portfolio management, and risk.
