The article reports on the creation of a recruitment fighting fund by London, England-based brokerage firm Cobalt Capital. As part of the drive, the company is offering prospective employees who sign up a £50,000 golden handshake. The scheme is thought to give Cobalt a competitive advantage when it comes to recruitment as they have no set rules and start with a black piece of paper. Moreover, Cobalt has introduced an exclusive Portfolio Debt Management Service aimed at landlords.
