David Barrett Partners publishes Addressing the Diversity Gap, an actionable hiring road map for asset managers
In the face of underwhelming diversity statistics among asset managers, there is an energized desire from companies to implement best practices and address their lack of diversity at all levels. As a boutique international asset and wealth management search firm, David Barrett Partners can influence and help improve the diversity of the investment industry work force. This has been a critical issue for third party asset/wealth management and asset owner clients, and the hiring of diverse candidates continues to be one of the key criteria on all searches. Addressing the Diversity Gap provides an action-oriented solution. The intent of the report is not to try and solve every issue related to diversity in the asset management industry. Rather, the objective is to provide a road map with practical tips based on research and proven examples of success to help companies not only attract more diverse applicants, but also to increase the chances of diverse hires through specific interviewing techniques. Partner and author Elizabeth Havens takes a practical, bottom-up approach to recommending how organizations can start to re-think out of date practices in recruiting high potential talent at all levels, and how individuals can take ownership for helping to shape the personnel demographics of the asset management industry.Details in Press Release with PDF of "Addressing the Diversity Gap" August 3, 2020
