With RSR Partners’ acquisition of Higdon Partners, we have created a premier asset management recruitment and advisory team for global business. The new RSR Partners Asset Management Practice resulting from the acquisition is uniquely positioned to address the evolving leadership and advisory needs of the asset management industry.
This combination, moreover, not only strengthens our Financial Services Practice, but also brings some of the best and brightest executive search and advisory talent in the asset management arena to RSR Partners. For the Higdon Partners team joining RSR Partners, the combination provides the infrastructure, additional resources, and functional capabilities to further scale their business and creates a broader platform and deeper expertise from which to provide their asset management clients leadership insight and access.
With shareholder activism continuing to rise, coupled with the emerging trend of traditional investment managers becoming more vocal about corporate governance, the combined firm is now at the heart of the increasingly important nexus of institutional shareholders and corporate boardrooms to provide strategic counsel and leadership advice.
