Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Economic Research Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Economic Research talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Economic Research professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Economic Research talent and are able to provide clients with Economic Research professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Economic Research professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Economic Research consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Economic Research consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Economic Research talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Economic Research talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about Economic Research

What is Economic Research?

Economic research in the area of finance studies the factors that affect financial markets and their behaviors. Economic research in finance can be applied to a variety of problems, such as predicting the probability that a firm will declare bankruptcy or forecasting changes in currency markets. Economists use economic modeling techniques to predict how people behave when faced with various situations, such as an increase in taxation rates or an under-supply of raw materials needed for production. Fintalent’s economic research consultants also use the technique to gain insight into how collective decision-making can affect societal well-being.

Economic research in finance also studies the decision-making of individual investors, traders, and corporations. Studies of behavioral finance have been used to understand how people make decisions that are rational from their own point of view but appear irrational to economists. Much economic research in finance focuses on price behavior in financial markets where the goal is not to predict prices but to understand investor reactions. Economic researchers have studied issues such as the impact of competition from a new firm on existing firms, the effect of expectations about future prices on market prices for various assets, and the effect on market prices if one firm decides to withdraw from a particular market.

Interest rates are an important part of economics research in finance since they determine how much people save and borrow. Higher interest rates discourage borrowing and encourage people to save more. So, if interest rates were kept low, there would be more savings. If interest rates are high, people save less and borrow money to buy things they want but don’t necessarily need. So an increase in the value of a currency might make it easier for a country to borrow money because foreign lenders would want to lend money at lower interest rates from the new currency value.

The fluctuations of markets are part of economics research in finance. This can be measured with various types of price indices that chart movement of prices for a broad range of assets over time. Analysis provides insight into what drives markets such as their liquidity, efficiency, or instability.

Economic research in finance is an important part of the financial market system. By analyzing how markets work and how people act, economists can help create better market systems that operate more efficiently and effectively.
