Commodities Executive Search and Recruitment in Switzerland

AP Executive is an international search firm specialising in recruitment for Financial Commodities, Equities, Quant Strategies, Macro, Credit, and Private Equity. With offices in Zurich, Geneva, and globally, we maintain the quality of a boutique search firm whilst offering the advantages of scale and bandwidth traditionally associated with larger agencies.

Our multi-asset class search offering has deep roots in the commodities markets. With over three decades of experience placing senior level candidates and physical and financial energy and commodities traders, it remains a key focus for our agency and clients.

We have built an excellent track record across liquid asset classes including Commodities, Equities, Quant Strategies, Macro, and Credit, as well as in Private Equity and Infrastructure Investment markets. We are one of the few executive search firms in the market that simultaneously delivers lateral senior-level investment and trading talent with a track record, while also providing thorough on- and off-cycle associate search work for our Hedge Fund and Private Equity clientele.

Our consultants engage with our clients on both a retained and contingent-exclusive basis, and are most effective partnering with clients who strive to proactively hire superior performers in highly-competitive markets.

By working attentively with the clients, we have built an understanding of what differentiates each firm’s investment process and performance metrics. As such, we are well-placed to evaluate and identify individuals who have the nuanced skillset to transition successfully and add lasting value to our clients.
