  • Mission 4April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction In a market dominated by uncertainty, the recruitment and retention of executive leadership in the asset and wealth management industry requires a special combination of deep market knowledge, combined with the independence, wisdom and experience to put this knowledge to work accurately.

  • Mission 5April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction   Market Knowledge George Wilbanks brings a 30-year career spent in the investment business, first in venture capital and mutual funds and subsequently building the asset and wealth management practice at Russell Reynolds Associates. He has worked on nearly 1,000 searches with experience in virtually every facet of the investment and wealth advisory business.   Independence Clients can feel secure that their interests are placed first, because the independence of a small private partnership allows a completely objective point of view, without the conflicts of public ownership or competing financial interests, either geographic or by line of business.   Customization Managing executive human capital requires efforts in both retention and recruiting, and always involves both internal and external people resources. Wilbanks Partners LLC was founded on the belief that building a successful longer term partnership with clients requires skills and initiatives in both these areas. We will therefore completely customize every engagement around a client’s needs, not our existing delivery infrastructure.   Exclusivity Wilbanks Partners LLC will provide exclusive services to every client partnership, not taking any other conflicting commitments during the duration of the relationship. We have heard the frustrations of clients in this area, knowing that the large size of many competitors requires that they “feed the machine” to cover large fixed costs, frequently leading to tough choices amongst the demands of multiple clients.   Efficiency Wilbanks Partners LLC is structured as a virtual business, with team members working onsite with clients and out of a network of offices throughout the world with one of the largest business suite operators. Our entire technology and communications infrastructure is SaaS based, using cloud computing solutions, allowing us to move towards SSAE 16/AT Section 101 compliance for absolute confidentiality and institutional grade reliability. The most important outcome of this efficient structure is the ability to work reliably and flexibly around the evolving needs of specific client requirements.
  • April 2014 6 II. Client Services Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction
  • Client Services 7April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction Wilbanks Partners LLC provides a full range of executive recruiting and organizational management consulting services to every segment of the asset and wealth management business.
  • Fields of Specialization 8April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction   Asset Management Wilbanks Partners LLC brings expertise across the entire Institutional Investor 300 with a track record of engagements in mutual funds, ETF’s, hedge funds, private equity and institutional separate account businesses. This is the core of the firm’s expertise.   Wealth Management With the volatility of markets putting the value of good advice at the forefront since 2008, this is an important area of focus for Wilbanks Partners LLC. Recent search work includes projects in mass affluent wealth advisory, ultra-high net worth private banking and family offices.   Financial Technology In the face of slower growth in valuations across the global capital markets, restricted capital flows from investors and higher volatility due to unprecedented geopolitical events, asset and wealth management firms are increasingly focused on expense management as a major initiative to drive long term profit growth. Investments in technology are becoming a major driver of innovation in cost savings. Wilbanks Partners LLC’s core business model is a response to this very same phenomenon. Our recent recruiting work has included work with outsourcing vendors, software companies, and middle and back office service providers.   Functional Roles Our work in the asset and wealth management sectors has included investments, sales, marketing, financial management, strategy, technology and operations. Of course, there is a distinguished track record of Board and “C” suite leadership projects.
  • Services Provided 9April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction   Executive Search With the maturing of the field of executive recruiting, there is increasingly little mystery about who the candidates are. But faced with an increasingly litigious society and an alarming degree of media scrutiny, discovering accurate information on personal and professional competencies can be extraordinarily difficult. Wilbanks Partners LLC assumes that every engagement simply starts with a complete list of all the targets in a given universe. The real work is in putting to use a lifetime of relationships across a very wide path of the industry to discover the real character, skills and fit that a candidate might have with business and leadership challenges and cultural fit with our clients.   Organizational Management Consulting Very often the correct solution to an executive resource concern is internally based. Wilbanks Partners LLC will be structured to work closely with clients to determine whether internal resources would be more a more effective solution than external, and if that is the case, how to put those solutions in place with a high degree of certainty that key executives can be retained. In addition, our extensive market knowledge is put to work gauging both the acquisition cost, and the retention cost of a particular executive resource solution.   Executive Assessment Wilbanks Partners LLC is prepared to work closely with clients to integrate a full suite of psychometric tools into our consulting work, whether as part of a search, or on a project specific basis. We work closely in partnership with ghSmart & Company in this field. Most importantly, the team has experience in following through on any assessment with highly customized and fully integrated coaching opportunities.   Executive Coaching As part of successfully integrating a new hire, or in securing the retention of a key performer, it is useful to retain an external point of view to develop both productive communications within a team, or work on specific skill developments. Either through our own team, or in conjunction with a network of other licensed professionals, Wilbanks Partners LLC has provided executive coaching skills at critical junctures with positive results.

  • Sustainable Finance 19April 2014Wilbanks Partners LLC: Introduction As an important part of our mission, Wilbanks Partners LLC will be working with the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board, the Global Impact Investment Network, and other partners to bring a unique human resources consulting perspective to the rapidly growing world of sustainable finance. We believe that accounting for material externalities such the environment, social responsibility and governance will be critical to the long term growth and profitability of the asset and wealth management business, and this is our small way of making a difference. This will include the recruitment of investment professionals in the field, where we have already partnered successfully with one of the largest ESG investment firms, as well as consulting services to portfolio companies of impact investors and the support of NGOs active with investors and businesses. We believe that opportunities exist in our own local communities at the bottom decile of wage earners, as well as globally at the bottom of the pyramid.
