Our expertise


Litchfield provides retained search services to a variety of global and domestic investment businesses including institutions, hedge funds, wealth managers and family offices.

We are typically most effectively deployed to recruit at 3 levels: Business Head, Functional Head and 1 level beneath Functional Head.

The Practice has an extensive track record in recruiting both individuals and teams across investment, distribution and business management.

We also offer clients advice on management and leadership, remuneration, succession, integration and acquisition. 

investment leadership/portfolio managers

Our experience helping asset management clients hire the best portfolio managers in long only equities and fixed income began in 1998. We have particular depth of experience in emerging market & frontier equities, global equities as well as experience across fixed income.

Problem or complicated searches

Litchfield has repeatedly completed searches for clients who have tried unsuccessfully themselves or through another search firm to make a senior hire. This could be for numerous reasons: lack of process, market knowledge or access. 

We are happy to share these anecdotes with you and help your firm identify and hire the optimal solution.

sales & client management

It has never been more important for asset managers to differentiate themselves and articulate their strengths clearly. Litchfield has extensive experience in placing outstanding leadership and executives in sales, CRM and product specialism across the institutional space.

insurance asset management

Litchfield has helped many of the world's leading insurance asset managers appoint senior solutions, sales and client relationship people. We have also advised and made strategic hires for new entrants and smaller insurance asset managers looking to grow their business.
