Risk Management

The Risk Management recruitment team at Options Group is a global leader in providing top talent across the entire spectrum of risk management; including market risk, counterparty risk, model validation, regulatory and compliance. We have successfully placed individuals at all levels, including Chief Risk Officers, Heads of Compliance, Heads of Operational Risk Management, as well as various team members.


Post financial crisis, financial firms of every shape and size began to place a higher level of importance and scrutiny on their risk management practices. Sell-side firms have had to contend with a significant increase in governmental oversight, thereby creating a large demand for risk professionals within every level and function. Buy-side investors have demanded that funds intensify their risk management efforts, cementing risk as a significant voice in the investment process. Throughout, Options Group has worked with smart firms from both side of the street to aggressively staff their risk management teams in response to these new market demands.


In addition to recruiting traditional risk management, regulatory and compliance professionals, firms have had to increase spending on technological support for these businesses. As Options Group has always been a leader in financial services technology, we have been instrumental in building out risk management technology practices for both sell and buy-side firms.
