About us

Arbitrage Search Americas was founded in 2016 following the success of Arbitrage Search and Selection in Europe since its inception in 2011. In Europe we have worked with over 80 companies including Investment Banks, Asset Managers, Venture Capital Funds, Hedge Funds, Consultancies and FTSE Corporates. Our placements have included Head of Trading, Head of Investor Relations, Chief Economist, Head of FX Strategy, Portfolio Managers, Real Estate Analysts, Head of Sales, Head of Econometrics, Quants.


Our senior consultants focus on the ‘selection’ stage, luring out top talent and ensuring the quality of short-lists to make certain candidates are fully briefed and motivated by opportunities.

We are veterans of all recruitment styles –  networking to generate references, advertising to create interest, directly contacting candidates and cold-calling businesses to uncover hard to find talent.

We also have a high profile in markets and economics from sponsoring various Hedge Fund Awards, Asset Management Awards, Society of Business Economists, Diversified Growth Fund Research Reports etc.


Key to our success as a search firm has been the depth to which we have gone in understanding targeted market segments. We have helped design new business functions including team-builds from the analytical side, to the business side with integrated sales teams. Some clients have used us to build businesses as an alternative to acquisitions. We can produce detailed information to supplement searches. For example we have produced industry analyses on competitor firms, to understand sources of revenues and our clients' ability to create a market niche or improve the offering on competitors. We have also analysed the investment processes of leading investment teams to understand their process in creating and sustaining alpha as they scale up. This has enabled our clients to dramatically boost asset growth, and or substantially alter team structure while maintaining investment performance.
