Brickfield Fund Finance Recruitment was founded by Rory Smith in 2019. His vision was to create a market-defining recruitment solution for one of the most exciting and growth-led niches in finance.

Working in partnership with the Fund Finance Association, Rory masterminded the cross-border fund finance legal reference guide, known in the industry as “The Pink Book”, which is available via the FFA and industry events. Brickfield is the only recruitment firm to produce a US and Europe fund finance banker’s compensation and hiring benchmark report, which is now downloadable for free.

Since founding Brickfield, Rory has played a key role in facilitating some of the most high-profile moves within the fund finance industry. He has also undertaken industry consultations for banks and law firms facing challenges in attracting high quality candidates within this competitive recruitment market, advising on fund finance industry specifics and key guidance on issues such as base salary expectations, bonus benchmarking and brand reputation.

Rory’s unique market knowledge and passion for this industry is unrivalled and his reputation is one of candour, trust and competence in the market. He regularly contributes to Cadwalader’s highly respected Fund Finance Friday industry blog.
