The Hanover Search Group has cultivated a strong reputation across the Asset Management industry: our client base includes boutique asset management operations, through to large global, multi-asset and multi-client institutions.


We have a particularly strong track record of delivering executive search services for clients seeking senior level technology talent as the industry is disrupted through innovative, cutting edge technology. As many Asset Managers look to adopt modern technologies and put Data and Technology “at the heart of their businesses”, we have led the build-out and development of a number of clients’ IT and Change functions, from the top down. Some of our completed mandates include placing Chief Technology Officers & Chief Information Officers, Chief Digital Officers, Chief Data Officers and Chief Information Security Officers. We have also worked closely with technology heads to assist in building their teams across Development, Project Management, Business Analysis, Support and Infrastructure functions.


Hanover Search Group’s Technology team is highly skilled in identifying innovative talent from outside the Asset Management sector, ultimately helping our clients to embrace technical skill sets which give them a crucial competitive edge in this very dynamic market place.
