Highlighted in the article was the rigid regulatory structure and licensing requirements that make the financial sector unlike most other market sectors and industries. Complicating this problem is the fact that rules and regulations governing the financial sector constantly change, with different countries adopting different rules at different times. This has had the effect of dissuading many recruitment firms from possessing clientele within the financial and investment sector, relegating financial sector recruitment to a niche pursuit carried out by only a select few firms, GoBuyside being among them.

In laying out the solution for this issue, the article points out that recruitment firms with generalistic mindsets are likely not to place great emphasis or give much thought to the issue of regulation within the industry, resulting in less-than-stellar results. A seasoned recruitment partner with extensive experience in the financial sector, on the other hand, would pay great attention to and display intimate knowledge of the delicate balance needed to hire specialized talent while navigating the difficult global regulatory terrain. As such, it is suggested that financial firms should work with recruitment partners capable of matching the specialization of the firms themselves, as generalistic recruitment partners will be unable to give the issue of sector regulations the appropriate attention it deserves.
