New Alchemists start-up offers novel personnel consultancy


A new London-based start-up is seeking to help hedge fund managers build high-performing teams and prevent interpersonal friction from destroying value within their businesses.

New Alchemists has been co-founded by former Royal Marine officer and McKinsey & Company consultant Antony Shave, along with fellow veteran servicemen from across the Marines, the Special Boat Service and the SAS.

The firm is offering a tailored service, providing hedge fund firms with a combination of consulting, executive coaching and group coaching to help solve the organisational and personnel issues that might be distracting both management and staff from their core role
