Sagamore Investments (Sagamore) is an Investment Management company based in Hong Kong and Beijing. Since 2002, Sagamore has invested in over 100 funds (e.g. Venture capital funds, growth capital funds etc) and direct investments in China and the United States, with a strong focus in biotechnology, financial technology and artificial intelligence.
In early 2019, TalenX assisted Sagamore in the hiring of an experienced Investment Analyst that would likely to be successful on the job, and fit well into Sagamore’s unique company culture.
Sagamore has experienced several sub-par hires that, although demonstrated the necessary hard skills, did not demonstrate the behavioral fit (i.e. soft skills) for the job. Consequently, they wanted to look beyond the resume, and understand their candidate’s personality-fit to the organization’s culture and the job (i.e. Investment Analyst role).
Sagamore was looking for a solution that would give them deep insights into each candidate level of fit to the investment Analyst role, while still remaining cost efficient and scalable.
Sagamore partnered with TalenX to develop a talent selection process that auto-evaluates each candidate level of fit to the job, while providing deep insights into each candidate’s behavioral profile.
