Insights on Hedge Funds and SpringBoard Recruitment Drive

Recently, SpringBoard TM was invited by a US hedge fund to help look for a junior analyst to assist the fund manager with the financial analysis of companies. It was an urgent request, so the opportunity was publicized by neither the fund nor SpringBoard.
We ran our private recruitment process with 4 suitable candidates who were SpringBoard friends, and reviewed their applications and submissions to an assignment issued by the fund. We recommended the fund our top candidate and successfully got him an interview. If you want to hear the rest of the story about how our latest private placement style recruitment drive can help you step through the hiring manager’s door, please join us at our wonderful evening session.
SpringBoard Director, Yoman, also a seasoned fund manager, has done some in-depth work into the hedge fund roadmap. He is pleased to invite a panel of senior investment professionals to share their insights with the audience. A brief synopsis of our sharing is found in this link.
