Alexandre and Anthony both obtained a master’s degree in Business and Finance, and began their careers in the financial industry and consultancy.

After a few years, Anthony joined a UK recruitment firm based in Brussels in order to launch their banking and insurance division. His passion and energy rapidly allowed him to build a successful team. As his team grew, Anthony contacted Alexandre and asked him to join him at the firm. Success was inevitable, stemming from the right balance between the understanding of the industry and deep integration in their network. The success of their team allowed them to evolve quickly but, despite their excellent performances, they realised the difficulty of impacting the strategy of the company. They believe in specialised recruitment through partnerships, consultants with experience in the industry and attendance at technical seminars.

In 2014 Alexandre and Anthony founded a company, naming it Asquare in reference to the first initial of their first names and financial mathematics. Anthony and Alexandre are convinced of the importance of two elements for the success of their project: specialisation and passion. The passion for finance has always been a driving force since the beginning of their careers, while specialisation has been the basis of their success in their first steps in recruitment. The firm therefore operates through a matrix organisation according by geographical area, trades and industries. The firm’s mission is to advise and help clients identify and attract key talent to their success. The firm’s commitment continues beyond simply recruiting. Indeed the success of their mission is not just the placement of talent but rather the impact that it will have in the long term.

The firm is now present in Brussels, Paris, Luxemburg and Zurich.
