Executive Search and Leadership Advisory for the Asset Management Industry

Over three decades of experience · Boutique consultancy · Immersive Representation

Our approach to your success

Welcome to The Orion Group. Since 1985 we have been partnering with companies in the Asset Management Industry to identify, vet and recruit the industry's most attractive talent.  

Immersive Representation sets us apart. This means we get to know you, your company and your culture before we take your search to market.

Research sets us apart. Our proprietary process and machine-learning technology allows us to identify and validate high-value candidates.  Our perpetual investment in industry-leading research technology is many times that of firms much larger than ours.

Relationships set us apart. For three decades our clients and candidates have trusted our discretion, transparency and honesty.  

Our mission is to find leaders and drivers who integrate seamlessly into your organization.

What we do

Enlightened Search through Immersive Representation

The Orion Group process is driven by small, dedicated teams of asset management industry consultants - all Orion Group owners - handling every aspect of your search process. From the commencement of research, through the effective evaluation, personal interviews and vetting process, a Partner will manage every step of your search with you from start to finish. Post-execution we maintain regular contact with the succesful candidate, assisting wherever necessary to ensure a smooth on-boarding and transition period.

If you believe this crucial process might be better served by a large multinational firm that will entrust vital aspects of your search to less-experienced analysts and associates, we suggest you may be more comfortable with one of the following firms:

As a true boutique consultancy, our selective hands-off list allows us to comb a large universe of potential candidates on your behalf. Unlike large firms, The Orion Group does not begin each assignment with a significant percentage of the most attractive executives unavailable to our client's process.

The asset management industry is the only industry for which we recruit. We understand its subtleties and nuances. We know the players. Our lengthy personal relationships with industry leaders allows us to more efficiently and thoroughly vet potential candidates at a time when that is both more difficult and more critical than ever before.

Who we are

Our management team has worked solely on the identification, evaluation and recruitment of the most sought after talent in the investment company industry longer than any other firm. We are relentless in our efforts to provide our clients with the highest level of service, to represent them in the marketplace as they would represent themselves, and to treat all potential candidates with respect and consideration.

Since its inception in 1997, The Orion Group has been led by Lawrence Lieberman. In 1985 he co-founded the first retained search firm to focus exclusively on recruiting management for the investment company industry. His approach and success in identifying, evaluating and recruiting key executives for the fund industry have been recognized by numerous groups and publications, including Smart Money magazine, which named him to their inaugural "30 Most Influential People in the Fund Industry" list. He is a frequent contributor to industry publications and appears on television regularly.
