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.

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 Transaction Origination professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Transaction Origination 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 Transaction Origination consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Transaction Origination 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 Transaction Origination 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.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Transaction Origination consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Transaction Origination

What is Transaction Origination?
Transaction origination happens when you find a source where people can invest their money via cryptocurrency as well as fiat currencies such as U.S dollars or euros. Transaction origination is how you earn money by getting your client to trade on their account. It’s the first step in the financial sales pipeline because it is what kickstarts your relationship with your client. Once you have established trust through identifying a need, need fulfillment, and closing the sale, the next stage is to execute transactions.

What Are the Different Types of Transaction Origination?
You can make your transaction origination be on many platforms from e-commerce to real estate. Below are the different types of transaction originations:

Crowdfunding is a type of transaction origination that is a centralized platform that involves users donating their money in exchange for some sort of reward or a share in the company’s profit. It involves both fiat currencies and cryptocurrency, while having a lot more ease compared to an ICO.

An ICO is a type of transaction origination involving issuing new cryptocurrencies or blockchain-based tokens for the desired purposes. If you want to get involved with an ICO, you will need to reach out to a consultant so that they can help you create the necessary whitepaper and get your company’s project approved for that specific ICO.

A VC (venture capital) transaction origination is a platform that is often used in the fields of venture financing and technology companies. This system involves providing funding to innovating companies, while providing them with access to an array of technologies such as robots, sensors etc. It involves either fiat currency or cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.

A stock transfer origination involves transferring shares from an investor to the buyer. This is a very common type of transaction origination, and it can even include other forms such as options or bonds. You will be required to create a separate account for this transaction origination and will only need to upload the necessary information such as:

Proof of Shares: This is important because it proves that you actually own the share that you are transferring.

Contract: This shows that you have agreed to transfer your share into the hands of the buyer. It must be uploaded in a PDF format, which can easily be converted into scanned images.

Proof of Address: This is important because it shows that the address where the share was originally sent to is where you are currently located.

Proof of Identity: This shows that you are who you say you are and also proves your residence at this particular address. A picture will be required and must be uploaded as a scanned image.

Financial Advisors and Transaction Originators

The goal of a financial advisor should be to find investors who are long term or permanent additions to their business. Long-term investments are considered by many to be more stable for advisors because they are able to take advantage of compound interest by locking in clients for longer periods of time. Transaction originators are the people who guide clients through this process. They identify needs, the potential to fulfill those needs, explain how to meet those needs with investments, and execute trades so that they can automatically receive compensation.

The role of financial advisors has changed over the last few years due to the rise of robo-advisors (or automated investment products) and other electronic investments like ETFs (exchange traded funds). While most financial advisors still recommend that their clients use them, many are choosing to focus on transaction origination instead. They know that transaction origination is far more profitable than selling any other kind of investment product because there is no limit on how much your client can make or lose with these products.

How Fintalent Can Help With Transaction Origination

Good transaction originators must know exactly what they’re doing. It’s not uncommon for new advisors to refer their clients to other new advisors just because they don’t know anything about transaction origination. New advisors are taught to be compassionate and to help their clients find a solution for their problems. This is not what makes them profitable. What makes them profitable is when they do it in a way that gets their clients to pay and commit to further investments. Financial advice is a very sensitive area of life because people tend to be very emotional about their finances and anyone charged with this responsibility may only have one chance to make an impression. It is therefore important that businesses put their best leg forward by entrusting this responsibility to seasoned experts be it freelancers as can be hired from Fintalent.

Long-term investments like retirement accounts and insurance, are difficult to sell because there is no prospect for large rewards and there’s plenty of competition from organizations that offer high commissions for investment products that are not very profitable themselves. The actual transaction origination business is much more profitable because it’s highly competitive, and highly capital intensive which underlines its importance. Businesses can therefore avail themselves of expert opportunities to hire experienced hands in undertaking this responsibility.
