The Challenge:

Tasked with securing a Chief Compliance Officer for London, the client’s requirements held exceptional intricacy. They sought a professional with a strong technical compliance background, the gravitas to function autonomously, a nuanced understanding of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs), and ideally, an element of legal training. This distinctive need demanded a meticulous search.

The Solution:​

Retained by the CFO, Compliance Professionals embarked on an exclusive search. With our unmatched reputation and 20 years of market insight, we initiated a comprehensive search within the UK’s alternative asset management space. This in-depth market review scrutinised both the candidates competencies and cultural alignment.

The Outcome:

Through networking and producing an extensive market map, Compliance Professionals curated an exclusive shortlist of 5 CVs, each rigorously evaluated. Through this selection, 5 candidates were put forward for the first round of interviews. After this first stage, 4 candidates moved to the second stage, and then finally 2 reached the last round. At this final round, the Co-CEOs’ involvement became essential as the decision between the two final candidates proved challenging.

Through our relentless dedication to the search, Compliance Professionals secured MML a remarkable candidate from another European Private Equity company. This result not only fulfilled the client’s precise requirements but also demonstrated Compliance Professionals’ unrivalled capacity to navigate such intricate searches.



We look forward to working with MML again in the future.
