GF Parish Group


GF Parish Group is a boutique, national recruiting firm, with offices in Minneapolis and Boston, that focuses exclusively on the investment industry and provides an extraordinary level of service to our clients. Founded in 2003, the firm places candidates in a wide variety of roles, including c-suite executives, team lift-outs and acquisitions, portfolio managers and analysts, institutional and retail distribution personnel, as well as product management, marketing, operations and technology staff.

We differentiate ourselves in several important ways:

Unlike larger firms, we don’t hand off our assignments to other team members to execute. A senior member of our team will be your point of contact, will manage the day-to-day search activities, would personally interview each qualified candidate, and is responsible for creating the write-ups and presenting candidates to you and your team.

GF Parish Group candidate write-ups are unique and often substitute for the first-round interview. Typically 4-5 pages long, each write-up will provide you with genuine insight into each candidate’s accomplishments, personality, character and process.

Our team consists solely of professionals who come from the investment industry. As a result, we have a unique ability to constructively challenge candidates and to dig deeply into their answers rather than simply accepting what they tell us.

Finally, we genuinely partner with our clients so we can accurately and sincerely represent the opportunity to candidates. Doing so creates an authenticity within the search process that candidates respond to.
