Stephens Rickard offers executive search and strategic solutions to core clients through strong technical product understanding, awareness of the fundamental factors influencing future growth patterns and an in depth knowledge of leading (Re)insurance and Financial Markets professionals.
Our London and Zurich hubs are well placed to serve clients across the UK, Switzerland and mainland Europe. We also handle assignments for selected clients in Bermuda, the US and Asia.
“Competitive Intelligence Reports – we can provide bespoke reports for a clients’ specific needs covering areas such as competitor analysis & organisational mapping and market feedback, as well as specific, granular remuneration reports.”
We work in partnership with our clients on a long-term basis. We are committed to delivering for our clients, adding real value to their businesses and enhancing the careers of those we help to appoint.
Retention of key employees can be a complex challenge. Whether your organisation is underperforming or exceeding expectations you will find your executives are targeted by competitors, and/or unsettled by change.
Retaining such individuals isn’t simply or even necessarily just a matter of paying them more. Anything from the structure of rewards through flexible working practices to sabbaticals, coaching, sponsoring further study and even bespoke compensation deals encourage loyalty and commitment from the beneficiaries of such incentives.
As well as the mainstream role we perform for a range of clients (i.e. finding key executives and teams for them) across the financial services markets, Consultants at Stephens International are well placed to provide services beyond this.
The examples below provide an illustration of some of these services and with contacts across Banks, (Re)insurers, Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and Family Offices as well as Private Equity organisations and Ultra High Net Worth individuals, we have facilitated a number of opportunities for clients by working closely with our associates including:
o Introduction of capital, (both working and risk capital)
o Competitor analysis
o Product Diversification opportunities
o Strategic input on matters such as alternative capital structures & tail risk solutions
General overviews of compensation and benefits including salary levels and average increases are readily available from the major benefit consulting firms. However, there are instances where smaller organisations and more specialist firms require greater depth of information which is not easily obtained.
The nature of our work as an Executive Search Practice affords us a clear and unbiased view of the salary levels, benefit packages and incentive plan structures of numerous senior individuals and executives working within the insurance and reinsurance markets.
