Financial recruiters back on the acquisition trail

Zoya Malik, 22 November


ore-Asset Consulting is looking to acquisitions to supercharge its expansion plans into Fintech.

Having initially announced its willingness to acquire Fintech or IT recruitment teams weeks before the pandemic struck, Core-Asset Consulting is reaffirming that message after posting record results, against a backdrop of growing business confidence.

The Edinburgh firm is the dominant name in recruiting for the country’s finance, asset management, accountancy and legal sectors – and is looking to consolidate its offering in fintech, the disruptive field where technology is developed to automate and improve financial services.

It comes off the back of a strong rebound following the market shock of lockdown, which saw hiring all but grind to a halt, with the firm set to replicate last year’s revenue totals of around £15million.
