About us

Our Story

Ramsey Portia has been connecting talent and expertise since 2013.

Founded on a combined twenty years of investment management recruitment experience, we pride ourselves on our unmatched combination of traditional values and modern approach.

The same passion that fuelled us all that time ago still drives us today, and our reputation continues to command repeat business. We look forward to seeing what we can do, and empower you to achieve, next.

Our Mission

Passionate, professional, perceptive: we thrive on being named all these things, and more.

That’s because our number-one priority is our clients and individuals we represent. Our aim is to satisfy by providing not only the services they need, but service beyond what they expect.

As we continue to achieve this mission, we continue to grow and succeed. Work with us, and you’ll see why.

Our commitment

We will never take on an assignment we are not confident we can fill

Our capabilities

As buy-side specialists, we work with investment management businesses, hedge funds and private-equity houses.

Our focus is on distribution- and product-related roles, though we also have the expertise to manage opportunities in:

  • Institutional, wholesale and retail marketing
  • Business insight and market research
  • Client relationship management, investor relations, sales and consultant relations, and sales support
  • Investment, RFP and presentation writing
  • Investment and product specialism
  • Product management and development
  • Private debt and direct lending
  • Investment strategy and analysis
  • Operations, performance, risk and client reporting
  • Compliance, governance and legal services

Our unique proposition

Our ability to provide our clients with access to the candidates no other company has access to – and openings that aren’t even on the market – truly sets us apart.

This exclusive insight is achieved through our innovative Ramsey Portia attraction and selection methodology, which includes the proactive contacting and headhunting of individuals with skills our clients seek.

While most rely on advert responses and database searches, we work around the clock to find only the best individuals for your business, and only the most suitable positions for the professionals we represent.

Our approach

We understand the importance of finding the perfect fit.

That’s why we take the time to deeply explore your requirements and expectations, ensuring we don’t just meet them, but exceed them.

And this approach delivers results. In fact, we’ve matched over 500 opportunities in more than 7 cities throughout the UK and Europe.
