Equities - Capital Markets

Elgin White provides a precise service in a finite community. Elgin White aligns to products not functions; we know what makes our clients unique and why people will work for them, we know the challenges people will face once hired and ensure the person not only fits the role but the company.


Elgin White work with Banking and Broking Businesses across the Sales, Trading & Research functions. In addition to the business areas Elgin White work with the Quantitative and Business Technology groups that help build complete business platforms.

In addition, Elgin White’s clients typically provide “Institutional Cross-Asset Services” to the Buy-Side through Prime Services or Asset Servicing groups. This is also a core vertical for Elgin White where we regularly work closely with these groups across both business and technology.

Case Study:

A major European bank planned to enter the Prime Services market; they needed to quickly develop a business platform and product offering that would be relevant to today’s Hedge Funds. Elgin White was mandated with securing an individual who could quickly develop the products and subsequently drive the initiative. Utilising our network within prime services we quickly identified and attracted a suitable candidate who was a key member of the implementation team and is now the COO of the business.
