During 2013 Gravitas continued to build on their existing partnership with Prudential HK and were tasked to help build their internal investment and Par fund team. Working closely with the leaders of the business they successfully placed at all required seniority levels, finding resource that was both scarce and highly in demand across the Hong Kong market.
Completed assignments include:
Director Investment & With-Profits Management
Senior Manager - Investment & With-Profits Management
2 Managers - Investment & With-Profits Management
1 Assistant Manager
Multiple senior officer
I have worked with Gravitas for many years and have always been impressed with the way that they conduct their business. It is clear from working with them on a range of assignments that they are a specialist insurance search company offering a detailed understanding of the insurance landscape within Hong Kong (and across Asia). Upon joining Prudential Assurance Hong Kong as the Director of Investment & With-Profits Management (through Gravitas) my initial brief was to build a scalable team that would encompass both varied and niche skills sets across Actuarial, Risk management and Investment. Owing to the detailed methodologies, internal models and European standards, Prudential's criteria for selection would always challenge our resourcing partner.
Being a key resourcing partner for Prudential, Gravitas Recruitment not only showed the expected urgency but also an accuracy and ability to fairly represent Prudential and the nature of the job and its requirements. Throughout the process, Gravitas offered consultative advice across skills availability, salary bench-marking and most importantly an understanding of the candidates that they represented. It is clear from working and successfully hiring multiple positions through Gravitas that their model of working highly specific niches within the insurance industry is a model that works very well. I would certainly recommend Gravitas as a strong company to partner with for a fair, transparent and accurate insurance resourcing solution.
