Wessex Partners is a specialist financial services executive search boutique

About us

We are known for our thorough research process which lies at the heart of every search and has been honed over more than a decade in partnership with our clients. We are committed to delivering the highest quality of service; we know that every search and process is unique and therefore requires a tailor made approach to sourcing a candidate who will make a real difference to a business.

Wessex Partners works with a select number of clients in order to develop a deep understanding of their culture, philosophy, history, strategy and plans for development. We believe this creates a powerful partnership which allows us to promote businesses on an ongoing basis, as well as during specific searches.

We are retained by a range of financial services firms, from large investment and commercial banks to smaller advisory firms. We also work with large asset management businesses, start-up firms and alternative asset managers.

We strongly believe that executive search requires specialist consultants, not generalists. This is the ethos on which Wessex Partners is based.
