​Selby Jennings, the leading recruiter for banking and financial services, are delighted to announce the opening of a new office in Los Angeles. We hope the new office will help strengthen our relationships within the West Coast’s thriving financial sector. Previously, our San Francisco office served the Los Angeles area.

“Throughout these challenging times, we have been more determined than ever to help our clients find business-critical talent,” commented director and office head, Dylan Pany, “Our Los Angeles office will enable us to better support the local community.”

This further expansion within the West Coast demonstrates our long-term commitment to the region, which is on track to become one of the world’s major financial hubs.

An increasing number of businesses, particularly those involved in fintech, are choosing to expand their operations into the city thanks to the strong talent pool and lower real estate costs. Meanwhile, finance professionals from all over the country are choosing to accelerate their careers by moving to the ‘Silicon Beach’.

“We believe Los Angeles will continue to grow in significance as a major financial center, economy, and employer,” said Dylan Pany. “Over the last 12 months, we have seen a lot of net migration to the area. Professionals are attracted to the lower cost of living, healthier lifestyle, and emphasis on work-life.”

As banks, insurers, fintechs, and asset managers grapple with significant change, they need to secure the right people to move forwards with confidence. Established in 2004, Selby Jennings exists to solve the number one challenge facing businesses today: talent.

“Opening an office in Los Angeles will further strengthen our service capabilities in the West Coast region,” said executive director and regional head, Luke Newton, “Los Angeles’ financial sector is booming and we are delighted to help local firms secure the specialist talent they need to sustain growth.”
