We Connect You
With Exceptional Candidates

At Vlaad and Company, we help your team reach its full potential, connecting you with exceptional candidates. We zero in on the best financial talent in the market.


We attract and engage talent across investment and corporate banking and capital markets through direct investment, asset/wealth management, and corporate development.

How We Work

Understanding the Client and Opportunity

Our proprietary Search Navigator is specially designed to best understand all aspects of the opportunity, your organization and its culture, such that we mine the most relevant top talent within candidate pools we have mapped from all the sectors we cover.


Throughout the entire search process, we ensure we thoroughly understand you, and your role, such that we can best represent you in the market. We pride ourselves in fully understanding our marketplace, its trends, its developments, and its perceptions of you and the opportunity. This information is very effective in closing searches efficiently.

Candidate Sourcing and Research

Finding candidates and receiving applicants is not recruiting. Partnering with our clients, our team of dedicated recruiters continuously reaches out to the market’s top talent.


This talent is sourced with deep research, with the sharing of market trends, and uses the full advantage of our market-leading newsletter, Bill’s Buzz, which reaches nearly 20,000 finance professionals – globally. We identify and connect with top performers in each sector we cover. There are many ways to find someone to ‘do the job’ – we will find you star performers who stand apart and excel at the role.

Short Listing

We pre-screen the best-qualified and most interested candidates and then interview those whom excelled. At which point we discuss with the candidates the market importance of our client and the opportunity at hand.


We are honest about possible challenges that come with the opportunity, and are realistic regarding possible career progression. We believe this approach ensures both our client and the potential candidates enter the recruitment process with all relevant information. Finally, we select only the strongest candidates and present them as a “Short List” for consideration.

Interview Stage

Each process is unique to each search with each client and is executed to ensure a smooth sequence of events targeting a positive ‘candidate experience’. During this stage we process and analyze the large volume of information which we summarize and share with our client.


As an intermediary, we act as a window into the concerns or queries of all stakeholders, addressing issues and questions promptly. We serve to gage interest level, collect feedback, and provide transparency which increases the efficiency of the Interview Stage.

Offer and Acceptance

Our experienced team of recruiters provides support and market knowledge so that your competitive offers get accepted. We use our experience with negotiation and up to date data from our compensation reports as tools to craft compelling offers.


Your success is our success. Therefore we stay connected with our clients (our new partners in business) and your the successful new hire, long after the offer has been accepted.

What Clients
are Saying

We are proud of the strong relationships we have built with our clients and candidates.

“Our experience with Vlaad and Company has been nothing less than outstanding. The team has always been willing to go out of their way to meet our needs. We initially engaged their services to help us find one qualified candidate; however, they brought two exceptionally talented individuals to our attention. We are proud to have hired both candidates and have them working for our firm. We couldn’t be more grateful for the attention, dedication and remarkable sixth sense Bill and his team have for matching candidates and employers.”
