A leading North American financial executive search firm sought to analyze the competitive landscape and develop recommendations for its future direction, along with a two-year growth plan.

We dove deep into the target company through website analysis, media coverage and partner interviews.

Compensation Benchmarking Surveys to Deliver a Competitive Edge

A leading executive search firm aimed to solidify its industry expertise and drive executive search demand through compensation trend insights.

We conducted a multi-geography survey of 20,000 executives across North America, EMEA and APAC. Over 2,000 responses were analyzed, considering parameters such as fund size, investment strategy, education background and experience. This data was correlated with deals, fundraising and compensation trends.


  • Crafted a dynamic internal presentation featuring detailed data, graphs, and charts. This provided a clear understanding of compensation trends, enabling informed strategic decisions
  • Published a comprehensive whitepaper for external audiences. This positioned the client as a thought leader in the industry, leveraging insights to drive executive search demand.

Transforming Leadership Assessment Capabilities

We introduced a suite of solutions, including a personality consultation dashboard for expert consultations based on psychometric data, a structured 360° referencing system for feedback collection, executive assessment report writing services, tailored psychometric data analysis and interpretation, and thematic analysis to identify common organizational development themes.
