What Makes The Kinlin Company Different:


The Kinlin Company’s exclusive focus on executive level assignments within Asset and Wealth Management makes us industry experts.

Personal Service

ALL candidate development as well as ALL candidate interviews are conducted solely by Ellen Kinlin. Two dedicated research assistants support these efforts.

Few Barriers

The Kinlin Company has self-imposed limits on the number of assignments and clients. The majority of our business is from repeat customers, therefore our off-limits list is small as compared to large firms with multiple offices and hundreds of restrictions.

Stability of Staff

The Kinlin Company operates with a team of support staff and research assistants whose average tenure is ten years, ensuring expertise at every level of our organization.


We are committed to identifying a diverse pool of candidates for every client. With a passion for supporting women in the workplace, The Kinlin Company’s WE Division provides our clients with access to the largest global database of senior executive women in the Financial Services Industry.


Our final retainer is due upon successful results only.
