Our executive search consultants
BoQuest was founded by experienced executive search consultant Bo Wang, and built around her mission to provide investment-centric search and management consulting services that help our clients to meet their strategic objectives.
We’ve broken away from older headhunting methods to create a fresh, modern, simple and cost-effective way to identify and engage top talent, breaking cultural barriers and developing cross-cultural connections along the way.
We’re passionate about finding the right professionals, with the right skills, personality and talent to fit seamlessly into your organisation and bring tangible business results. We’re dedicated to our quest to deliver the highest quality service – one that meets our clients’ high standards, while still providing space for our candidates’ authenticity to shine.
Our team are also strong advocates for the promotion of equality and diversity, challenging any potential discrimination throughout the search process, within the workplace and beyond.
With a truly global reach, we’ve helped clients to find the best talents in all major financial hubs, including locations across:
Due to the nature of our business and expansive service area, our network stretches far and wide. While this ensures the broadest opportunities for your business, it also presents us with the challenge of familiarising ourselves with both clients and candidates on a personal level – and getting to know the real people behind the businesses we work with is central to delivering the best results.
That’s why we created the BoQuest Global Network, a social platform where everybody is welcome; an opportunity to put names to faces and get to know each other better – after all, relationships are the foundation of effective recruitment.

Our executive search process for clients
We’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned among our clients as the go-to strategic executive search consultancy – both in the UK and globally – due to our rigorous and detail-driven processes, and creative yet methodical approach.
Backed up by thorough market analysis, we promise a tailored, personal approach, applied through six proven steps:
Engagement & Commencement
We like to meet our clients in person for the initial briefing, giving us the opportunity to agree search strategy and timescale.
Our in-depth and focussed experience enables us to challenge your presumption appropriately where required, ensuring you get the best results from our services.
We use our industry knowledge and experience to combine your exact requirements with key attributes – personally and professionally – and your company culture to create a targeted and detailed definition of the role, enabling us to pinpoint prospective candidates with precision and attract the right type of talent. We take into account direct industry knowledge alongside key transferable skills and cultural suitability.
Research & Longlist
At this stage, the action really starts to happen behind the scenes. Our search consultants start by conducting multiple calls and meetings to collate market intelligence, utilising our extensive network and following up referrals.
This detailed, bespoke and discreet approach culminates in a presentation of potential prospects – your candidate longlist. Together, we’ll consider each candidate’s professional background, personal circumstances and other relevant factors, to create a strategy for approaching and engaging those selected at the next stage.
Assessment & Shortlist
At this stage, we approach candidates to engage in an interview based on required competencies and create a short list of qualified, pre-screened candidates for your scrutiny. We will discuss each candidate’s strengths and areas for development in regards to your ‘ideal profile’ and guide you towards any details we feel would be beneficial for you to explore further at interview.
Interviews & Review
We’re here to help you throughout the interview process, using our market intelligence to help you select and secure the very best candidate, manage offers and negotiations, and deal with referencing where required.
Completion & On-boarding
Once we’ve agreed the start date for your new executive, that doesn’t mean that our work has stopped.
We’re here for both parties as things are contractually finalised and the new relationship forged – offering advice and support any time you need us.

For clients requiring a more focused and thorough aftercare programme, we’re pleased to introduce BoQuest 180+ Onboarding Coaching.
This six month coaching programme ensures a smooth and successful onboarding process for client organisations and executives, providing personal guidance and advice for both parties to help nurture a relationship that allows your business and your new talent to grow.
Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more.
Our executive search process for candidates
If you’re looking for your next executive role in the alternative investment or wealth management arenas, we’re here to help you cultivate your talents and find the best next step on your onward journey.
Ethical, confidential and with a genuine focus on relationships, we don’t just seek exciting new opportunities for you, but we also mentor and guide you throughout, so that your unique talents can truly shine at interview.
Our executive search process for candidates typically runs across the following six stages, although everything we do is personally tailored to your individual needs:
The first step is a thorough, face-to-face, in-depth consultation, where we’ll take the time to uncover and understand your situation.
We discuss your professional achievements, skillset, and cultural background and balance this with the client organisation to assess mutual suitability.
We’re here to guide you through the interview process. We’ll also help you understand the organisation’s expectations, team structure and prepare for case studies or psychometric tests that may be involved.
We are here as your sounding board – if you have any questions after your interview(s), we’re here to give you the answers – along with prompt and honest feedback at all times.
Your talents should never be undersold, so we take the time to gather market intelligence in order to understand current trends and assess your value, helping to ensure that the offer/total compensation package accurately reflects this.
Our job isn’t finished just because you’ve found and started your new executive role. We keep in close contact with you and your organisation, offering guidance for a successful onboarding process via our BoQuest 180+ programme.
We’re 100% committed to maintaining a long-term business partnership with you.
