Oliver James Associates heads to The Big Apple
The new operation is part of the specialist financial recruiter's planned international expansion strategy which has already seen successful launches into Hong Kong and Amsterdam and will see further international office openings over the next three years.
The New York team will initially specialise in actuarial recruitment which is Oliver James’ most established, successful and largest segment of business, and is where they have long standing relationships with many of the insurance and financial services businesses they are looking to partner with in the U.S.
A team of four existing actuarial specialists from their UK offices will be relocating to “the City that never sleeps” to run the office, with future appointments likely to come from local New York-based talent. They will initially focus on Life, Healthcare and P&C actuarial markets.
Oliver Castle, director of Strategic Development, says, “Opening a New York office has long been part of our international expansion plan and we are excited to be bringing our specialist knowledge and expertise to a new continent.”
Whilst the new office will not be up and running until later this year the team is already working on assignments with a number of stateside clients.
