What clients usually engage your Strategic Investment 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 Investment talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Strategic Investment talent and are able to provide clients with Strategic Investment 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 Investment professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Strategic Investment 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 Investment consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Strategic Investment 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 Investment 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 Investment 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 Strategic Investment

What is Strategic Investment?

Strategic investments are a type of corporate investment that is made with the view of acquiring top talent, technological or market knowledge and other competitive advantages that help a company to differentiate itself from its competitors. This allows it to boost the return on its shareholders’ equity and enhance its market value and competitiveness. It refers to a form of investment that a company makes in order to enhance its own value or that of a subsidiary. Investing is fundamental in any business decision-making process, but strategic decisions need more work and consideration. In this post we will cover some of the most common types of strategic investments, as well as their upsides and downsides.

A corporation can choose to invest in specific companies or assets; buy part or all of another firm; or partner with other organizations. Such investments may be made for financial reasons (e.g., buying bonds) or because they allow the company to grow strategically (e.g., acquiring a competitor). Strategic investments are also sometimes made to enhance the efficiency of the business, or to reduce costs, or they can be part of a merger and acquisition activity. Examples of common strategic investments include technology companies partnering with other companies in order to achieve economies of scale, pharmaceutical firms entering into exclusive licensing agreements with other organizations for the production of new drugs, and so on.

Worldwide Strategic Investment Market

The global strategic investment market is characterized by high profitability and low capital intensity, which attracts both private equity firms and multinational companies. In the recent past, a large number of mergers and acquisitions have been observed in the strategic investment market. The growing demand for strategic investments from corporations is also expected to fuel the growth of the global strategic investment market over the forecast period. Strategic investments are generally classified as either primary or secondary investments.

Primary strategic investments are those that a company makes in a firm with a view to acquire it completely or partly. A company may want to make primary strategic investments so as to capitalize on its partner’s intellectual assets, brand value, technology, etc., and grow by leveraging its partner’s strengths. However, buying out another firm must be done in an intelligent manner in view of its effect on the company’s existing operations and strategic plan. Primary strategic investments are the most common but they do not always yield high returns. On the other hand, secondary strategic investments provide higher returns than primary investments.

Secondary Strategic Investments are part of a wider set of investment activities that can include share repurchases, acquisitions of outstanding shares, etc. For instance, a company can make secondary strategic investments by acquiring shares in another company to gain control over it or to buy out its minority shareholders. Secondary strategic investments are generally more profitable than primary strategic investments. These investments are also associated with higher risks compared to primary strategic investments; that is why companies often consider making secondary strategic investment after carrying out thorough due diligence exercise.

In the past few years, conventional wisdom has shifted towards lower-risk investments that offer higher returns. However, as Fintalent experts have proven time and time again, conventional wisdom is often wrong. Fintalent’s Freelance Strategic Advisory Consultants would analyze a firm’s business operations, and suggest the most viable strategic investment option while stressing the importance of taking risks for better returns without putting the finances at risk.
