Browning Search Group was founded in 2001 by Simms Browning; the firm conducts executive search work primarily in the traditional and alternative investment management industries. Over the course of 20+ years the firm has worked with the majority of strategies in the marketplace and placed everyone from an Analyst to Managing Partner. We assist clients with the five main professional verticals; research/portfolio management, operations, accounting, marketing, and client service/investor relations.
After the economic fallout in 2008 Browning Search Group expanded its executive search work with limited partners. This expansion was a natural transition especially at a time when many LP’s had to review their internal personnel and investment strategies. A majority of LP’s found that as their portfolio became more reliant on alternative investments they required Browning Search Group’s assistance in hiring additional experienced and knowledgeable professionals for their team
Additionally Browning Search Group began to specifically offer management consulting services to its investment management clients, a service it had always offered but never really publicized.
