Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Investments 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 Investments 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 Investments professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Investments talent and are able to provide clients with Investments 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 Investments professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Investments 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 Investments consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Investments 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 Investments 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 Investments 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 Investments

What are Investments?
In private equity, investments can refer to two different types of investment strategy: venture capital and leveraged buyout. Venture capital is typically for financing new, fledgling companies with high growth potential, such as the next Facebook, though this can also be used more broadly to refer to start-up investing. As observed by Fintalent’s investments consultants, leveraged buyout investments are generally aimed at entire companies with established revenues that need refinancing.

Venture capital investments can either be a secondary transaction (also called a secondary buyout), or they can be early-stage financing that is provided to help startup companies get started. The later investment, called venture capital financing, is also sometimes called start-up financing. In either case, an investor will provide the startup company with funds in exchange for some equity in the company and a stake in the profit.

When an investor invests in a company, he or she is said to take part ownership of the company, called equity ownership. The equity owner receives a share in the profits made by the company as well as a say in how that company is run. Equity ownership can be used to entice investors by offering them shares of the company and its future profits, or it can add to the fixed value of an investment.

The second type of private equity investment is known as a leveraged buyout, or LBO for short. This strategy of investing involves taking an entire company, paying for it with little or no cash up front and using money borrowed from banks and institutional investors to complete the transaction. The investors then work with management and/or existing owners in order to improve efficiency and increase revenue streams, which will hopefully lead to an increase in profit margins. Once the company is operating successfully, the investors can sell the company for a profit. The money will be split between the lenders who financed the initial buyout and any remaining equity owners.
