As we begin a new year, I find that I spend a lot of my time speaking with decision makers about their strategic plans and questioning how they will be executing them. Some common responses I continually hear are, “We are looking for revenue growth in a measured way”, or “We want to wait until the second quarter and see what happens in Q1 first”, or “Keep us aware of firms laying off so we can scoop up some great talent“.
The reality is that within the wealth management industry, the demand for talent that produces revenue and/or directly adds to the bottom line is alive and well in 2023. Case in point, the recent cuts at Goldman Sachs, which primarily affected 3,200 among the junior ranks; eliminating these numerous lower-level positions will save the firm $200 million per year – read more here.
I am noticing that several firms are asking employees to be more visible in the office. In fact, some firms are requiring employees to return to their offices either full time or at least 50% of the time. In a recent article in Fortune Magazine, James Gorman, the CEO of Morgan Stanley, stated that working remotely is “not an employee choice.” This comment echoes the sentiment shared by a number of larger firms. Conversely, there are still firms that embrace remote or at least hybrid work schedules which, from a recruitment perspective, makes sense. Some people have shared with me that they prefer going back to the office, as they look forward to the camaraderie and in-person teamwork opportunities. For those that still prefer remote or hybrid positions, those opportunities may be getting more difficult to find.
We are only a few weeks into 2023, but from what I’ve seen so far, the wealth management industry, big and small, is open for business. We will proceed with caution while remaining optimistic as bonuses are disbursed this quarter and the carousel of comings and goings will undoubtedly begin to spin.
As always, I encourage your feedback and welcome any suggestions of topics to discuss in the newsletter. Lastly, if you are a decision maker seeking advice on a particular search strategy or maybe you are seeking to find the next great chapter in your career. My team and I are here for you and encourage hearing from you.
