The Shifting Dynamics of Wall Street 'Down, Not Out' speaks with John Rogan

January 19, 2012

John Rogan, head of the Global Banking & Markets practice, discusses the changing dynamics of the banking industry with Dan Freed from The Street:

Demand for certain skills, particularly fixed income trading, is down sharply from boom times, and John Rogan, head of the Global Banking & Markets practice at executive recruiting firm Russell Reynolds Associates, believes the fixed income market will be "structurally changed for a long time if not permanently."

However, executives who can help a hedge fund or private equity firm bring in new money or assist a big bank in attracting and maintaining large institutional clients are still very much in demand, Rogan says.

Boosted by record activity in Latin America, a "brilliant" year in Asia and "strong" activity in the U.S. and Europe, the global banking and markets practice at Russell Reynolds had its second best year ever, outpaced only by 2006, Rogan says.
