About us

Specialist expertise coupled with extensive experience in discreet executive search.

We are a London-based search and selection consultancy that specialises in finding wealth management and financial services professionals for blue chip and boutique clients.


The firm is this year celebrating its 22nd anniversary. In that time, we have earned an enviable reputation for sourcing exceptional talent and completing the most challenging assignments for prestigious organisations.

Our founder, Robin Douglas, has over 36 years experience in executive search, which translates to an extensive network of contacts and a deep understanding of the very specific requirements of the financial services market.

Robin has successfully undertaken a variety of wealth and investment management assignments for me over a number of years. He has notable skills in identifying candidates who may not be the most obvious for the position, but whose subsequent performance in role has proved outstanding. His understated approach enables a smooth process for both candidate and hiring firm.

Our Market

Wealth management is our predominant focus. We specialise in private wealth management, investment management, private banking, global custody and third party administration. However, our extensive network within the financial services industry means we also recruit for other senior positions that may not fall within those categories. A list of representative assignments is on the front page, and you can also view our current vacancies.


The Douglas Partnership was founded by Robin Douglas in November 2001. Robin had an early career as a Commissioned Officer in the British Army followed by several years as a Lloyd’s broker in the City, working as a Financial Adviser to the firm’s private and corporate clients. Robin has extensive experience in executive search, advertised selection and psychometric assessment, including 8 years with a pre-eminent global search firm, latterly running its asset and wealth management practice in London. To get in touch with Robin, call 020 7193 0064 or catch up with him on Twitter and Linkedin.
