The private banking and wealth management industry is emerging from a long transformation into a modern and transparent trade, but as the market grows so does the intense competition. The industry is moving away from pure portfolio management to focus more on higher quality and deeper client relationships. This can include a wide variety of more specialised services such as helping clients with their family management, dealing with complex non banking situations and estate planning.


At the present time the market is crying out for client focused bankers and wealth managers and so our role as your specialist headhunter is becoming increasingly important. We will bring you the best talent who can ensure your company is getting an increase in AUM.

  • Private Bankers and Wealth Managers with specialist networks (UHNWI, HNWI, institutional clients).



The asset management industry is facing a fundamental shift that will shape the future of the sector.  There are a number of challenges ahead including the forecast of a huge rise in managed assets and increased regulatory watch.


As specialist recruiters we can be of great assistance in the selection of high level specialists from mid-size asset managers to multinational asset managers. Our assistance can be utilised to hire the best talent to push your company forward and deal with the forthcoming shifts in the industry.

  • Hedge Fund, Private Equity, Corporate Funds, Real Estate Fund and Asset Managers.

  • Fund Accountants and Administrators.

  • Specialist Fund Composition and Structuring.

  • Conducting Officers.



Most experts agree that the investment banking industry has a positive outlook towards future changes. However, this means keeping up with an ever-changing environment and continual reinvention due to a combination of digitalisation and modern regulatory requirements.


As a company, we keep up to date on how the industry changes and on the impact of global regulations and Brexit.  The need for very strong professionals in the front office is becoming vitally important for an investment bank.

  • Capital Markets Consultant (Debt and Equity Capital Markets).

  • Mergers and Acquisitions.

  • Corporate Coverage and Strategic Financing.

  • Advisory Services.




Because the regulatory burden on the Financial Services and Banking sector has increased since the recession there is also a significant increase of firms needing to increase their legal and compliance budgets to ensure they are up to date with the new regulations.


As a specialist Legal & Compliance recruiter we pride ourselves on our ability to know the requirements of the front office. We fully understand the impact of a lack of  top compliance staff.  We have a long history of finding the best Legal and Compliance professionals.

  • Head of Compliance, General Counsel, Regional Head of Compliance, Head of AML/KYC.

  • Private Side/Public Side Compliance, Control Room Compliance.

  • Senior Legal Counsel, In-house Counsel, BAR Qualified Lawyers.



Recruitment is fast becoming an extremely important issue for multinational companies looking for specialist staff in the Financial Services and Banking world. This isn’t just for the clients themselves, but also the candidate.


In both cases, it is best to have a single point of contact who is looking after the best interests of both parties.  A contact who also has a long term commitment to both clients and candidates.


We are firm believers in the power of networking in an industry that requires a strong understanding of communication and building relationships,  not just collecting contacts.


Our vision is to provide a personal service to every person we interact with and to ensure that we do our job to the best of our ability.  We aim to provide you with access to our extensive network to assist you in your search. 


Beyond this we would hope to become the specialist recruitment firm you rely on in the future.  A company you trust to find the best candidate or to find you the best job suited to your requirements. 




Our goal is to build successful long-term relationships where both the candidates and clients can benefit from our professional services.  We are a specialist boutique recruitment firm that you can turn to with the confidence that we will be able to assist you efficiently and effectively, not just today, but in several years' time.

Logo for Spencer International Ltd

Spencer International and the company logo are an amalgam of a family name carried down from father to son and the crest from the Henslow coats of arms granted to Ralf Henslowe (1490-1557), Armiger of Boarhunt.  The logo is a Cockatrice, an heraldic device first described in the late fourteenth century as "a mythical beast, a two legged dragon with a roosters head".  Fourteen generations later it is still going strong as a logo for an international company that is founded on providing a service to clients and candidates that lasts for years.  As our candidates grow and become clients Spencer International hopes to be there, still serving you many years later.
