Frequently asked questions

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

We are a community-based M&A staffing platform.

Everything you need to know about Global Strategy

What is a Global Strategy?

A global strategy is the set of goals and objectives that an organization has developed in order to operate internationally. It may refer to how the company aims to compete on a worldwide scale while still catering specifically to a particular geographic region. Fintalent’s global strategy consultants note that companies can pursue either a ‘local strategy’, which focuses on exploiting local opportunities and mitigating local risks, or a ‘global strategy’, which focuses on shaping the relative competitiveness of a company in global markets.

An effective global strategy must be based on an assessment of the firm’s global capabilities and its external environment, including competition and the nature of customer demands (see adjacent diagram). This approach calls for a detailed analysis of a firm’s position relative to its competitors in different locations. The analysis should look at combinations of variables such as financial measures (e.g., profit margins, return on investment) with non-financial indicators (e.g., brand awareness) that are sensitive to strategic decisions made by competitors.

How can firms develop a global strategy that delivers value?

First, firms need to recognize that globalization is not a ‘one-way street’. They should devote as much attention to what they can do for the world as what the world can do for them. For example, companies need to think about how they can use their products and services to improve the quality of life and make the world a better place (both environmentally and socially). In many ways, this is just good business sense. Research shows that companies which consistently pursue development of innovative products and services are likely to deliver superior long-term financial results. Companies should also be prepared to collaborate. They may have to share some of their intellectual property, but in return they should receive the resources to develop new products and services. There is nothing wrong with cooperating with other companies in order to grow their business, provided that the partners can reach agreement on what each party is getting out of the relationship.

How does a firm develop a global strategy?

Firms have various options for developing global strategies. Initially, they need to assess whether an existing international business unit (IBU) should remain local or if it should be brought back into the company’s home country as part of a global strategy. If the IBU is to remain local, then it must be properly managed on a day-to-day basis. If it is to be brought back into the home country, then a new global strategic plan will have to be developed with strong integration of all the different functions of the business.

The majority of firms that start out pursuing an international strategy will be better off if they maintain their local capabilities. By not incorporating all functions within one unit, firms can maintain their autonomy and freedom to make decisions that are relevant to their local market and customer base. Firms with a global strategy might want to develop a program for bringing key functions (e.g. finance, human resources, technology and strategy) together.

What barriers do firms face when pursuing a global strategy?

In short, firms face three main barriers when implementing a global strategy. The first barrier is one of organizational structure. This can be especially difficult for manufacturing operations. The second is cultural differences between different countries (e.g., in non-western countries people typically do not like to make direct eye contact). Finally, there is the issue of language (in many companies globalization has led to increased use of English as a common business language). In order to overcome these barriers and fully exploit opportunities in foreign markets, firms have to think carefully about their market entry strategies. This has become increasingly important over the past few years as the number of competing firms has increased. Where firms do not have the capacity to develop an adequate strategy, Fintalent offers the option of hiring expert global strategy consultants on ad hoc basis.
