      Head of Investment Risk

      When BMO Global Asset Management needed to hire a Head of Investment Risk at short notice, we were their first and only call.

      The Challenge

      BMO Global Asset Management approached Lawson Chase with an urgent requirement to source a Head of Investment Risk in London, to lead a team of seven risk professionals in an Oversight role.

      Their prior Head of Investment Risk had left the business at short notice and there was an immediate need to fill the position on an interim basis. The business desired to hire someone who could commence the engagement on an initial 6 month contracting term and then transition to fulfil the Head of Investment Risk position on a permanent basis.

      The Solution

      Lawson Chase delivered a shortlist of seven senior candidates who had run Investment Risk functions within asset management businesses within a few days. The frontrunning candidate had recently been made redundant from a very similar Head of Investment Risk role at Aviva Investors and was able to start in place immediately. Following a term as a contractor, they transitioned into the role on a permanent basis.

      Candidate placed: Richard Wintle
