Asset management is the process of professionally managing investments with the view of making them grow on behalf of wholesale and institutional clients. The investments are made in a range of financial instruments and reflect differing risk profiles of the investors.

An asset manager possesses expert knowledge of investment types, financial statement analysis, portfolio creation and maintenance along with asset allocation and management. Acquiring top asset management talent is an increasingly difficult task for organisations seeking high calibre candidates as it is sometimes necessary to stretch beyond the limitations of local boundaries.

With an expansive presence across the Asia-Pacific region, we have an excellent reputation for sourcing and delivering the highest calibre candidates in these financial markets.

Our clients include global asset managers, boutique hedge funds, fund administrators and custodians.

“Anton Murray Consulting placed me in my current Investment Banking role. I’d been looking around for a while, using the usual career sites, but nothing seemed appealing. An ex-colleague told me about Anton Murray Consulting and from there I quickly landed a new position. Highly recommend the team.”
