Matchbook, the talent marketplace for the financial services industry, has entered into a strategic alliance with Argyll & Buchanan (A&B), a provider of prime brokerage solutions for startup and emerging managers, to provide clients with best-in-class recruiting technology and executive search services to help them grow their business.

Matchbook, a OneWire brand, provides a role-based marketplace of screened and vetted talent ready to make a move. Hiring firms can subscribe to different roles, view profiles, read recruiter notes, view compensation expectations, and interview candidates all free of charge. The Company charges a reduced success fee if a hire is made, decreasing the up-front risk and putting the firm in control of the process. Matchbook also offers customised tech-enabled executive search via its platform through a collaborative and transparent process.

Argyll & Buchanan, is an owner-managed, facilitator of Prime Brokerage solutions curated specifically for start-up and emerging fund managers.
