Case Study: Global Financial Services Firm


A global financial services firm with more than 200,000 employees worldwide that is headquartered in New York City.


Regulatory and ComplianceDue to the financial crisis of 2008 and the implementation of Dodd-Frank in 2010, global financial organizations have had to change the way they conduct business and implement massive changes across all business lines of the organization. The Dodd-Frank amendment to the Bank Secrecy Act allows state and local government agencies and certain foreign law enforcement agencies to submit requests for financial information. Because of this amendment, all financial institutions must rapidly and efficiently go back through their existing records to make sure all are within the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) standards. This has caused a huge pain point for financial institutions due to the limited supply and overabundance of demand for talented individuals that can perform these tasks.


Major, Lindsey & Africa’s Solutions Practice Group was able to specialize our recruiting approach for our client and offer the ability to scale up a large team of AML/KYC consultants with a J.D. or paralegal experience for the client’s records remediation project through a partnership with our sister company Aerotek.


All in, we placed 35 consultants (out of 50 potential openings) and served as a strategic partner to the client throughout the hiring process. The client relied on us to provide insight on the available talent pool and guidance on how to most effectively build out the team. The project, which began in late 2014, is slated to continue through the end of 2015. In May 2015, the client began discussing with SPG potentially bringing on another similar size team.
