Frequently asked questions

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

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

Everything you need to know about Strategic Consulting

A strategic consultant is a professional who advises and assists clients in reaching their goals by putting together and implementing an overall strategy. A good strategist is able to identify and analyze the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in a given situation. Once they have assessed the situation strategically, they are able to recommend courses of action that will enable their client to reach its desired goal.

Strategic consultants often work with clients in areas such as business, marketing strategies, production, and customer service. Financial Analysts in this field are well versed in information technology and law. They also have strong interpersonal, analytical and communication skills. Many consultants choose to become certified by their professional associations. Professional organizations for strategic consultants include the American Society for Consultant and Business Strategy, the Australian Institute of Management, the Association of Strategic Business Advisors, Inc., the International Business Development Council and the Institute of Management Consultants USA etc.

Strategic consultants are often hired by large firms to define objectives, design strategies for achieving those objectives, develop tactics to implement those strategies and evaluate their success. They are also hired by smaller firms looking to expand into new markets or make other changes that require innovative thinking. Their services are often retained by government agencies who want to streamline their operations or improve their image with the public.

Strategic consulting can be done as a self-employed business, as an employee of a larger firm, as a member of a small team within a larger organization or as a Freelance Consultant, the likes of which are abundant in Fintalent. In the 1980s and 1990s many governments hired strategic consultants to assist in developing conclusions and recommendations regarding policy issues that had been identified by the government. During this time there was great pressure to cut public expenditures and it became increasingly difficult for governments to justify spending money on public programs that did not have clear objectives or which could not be justified from an efficiency standpoint.

While some firms prefer to have an in-house team develop their strategic plans, there are many benefits to hiring a Freelance strategic consultant on Fintalent. It benefits clients because the process puts their needs first and provides them with a better way to view their problems and organized them into priorities and solutions. Strategic consultants benefits organizations because they can see their problems from a strategic, holistic approach necessary to make a difference. The process also ensures that the organization has a clear plan of action and an understanding of how it will be accomplished, which is beneficial in the past when organizations have been “run” by managers and executives instead of strategists. They also help businesses know what current objectives they need to maintain and look at other opportunities for growth. Lastly, strategic consultants provide leadership to their companies, which can help them win new business or retain existing business.

Strategic consultants also take the burden off of those within the organization from having to make decisions. Instead, they can concentrate on other things that are more important, such as improving the team’s skill level and helping them understand their problems so they can find solutions. Also, contracting with a Freelance consultant on Fintalent can be a potential cost saving measure for a government agency, but there are considerations that must be given due consideration before agreeing to a contract. The first consideration is whether or not the consultant’s services can be performed by the agency’s employees at a cost that is lower than the value of their services. If this is an option, it is important to understand what the consultant will do and how they will do it.
