About Us

Helping you grow assets, regain time, and get reliable proposal support.

Sharp Proposals is a full-scale proposal services contract and placement agency, dedicated to asset management.

Why Sharp Proposals?

While we operate as an external placement partner, we do so with a long-term relational mindset. When it comes to the professionals that we pair with our asset management partners, we are highly selective and value quality over quantity—always ensuring that their background and expertise are a close match for your needs.

Who We Are

We are a firm that places niche proposal professionals with dedicated expertise in asset management.

Our professionals typically have a minimum of 5-10 years of experience in the proposal space — with unique specializations in the asset management industry. We carefully match this expertise to our clients’ needs.

We are a firm that operates on a long-term contract or direct placement basis.

Pairing our asset managers with an external proposal partner allows them to save money on talent, simultaneously generate value, and focus their internal efforts on investment activities.

We are a firm that maintains a long-term, relationship mindset.

We aim to establish trusted relationships with our asset management partners—ideally becoming an extension of the firm.

Who We Are Not

We are not a proposal mill.

Our focus is on longer-term relationships. While we sometimes take on shorter-term projects, we do so very selectively, on a case-by-case basis—focusing on those that could grow in length.

We are not a revolving-door matching agency.

Just like any buttoned-up financial firm, we carefully seek out top talent and put them through a rigorous interview process with sample work and writing tests—similar to your own internal hiring process.

We are not looking to expand into multiple arenas.

Our focus is solely on asset management—though we cater to many specializations within that—and that will remain the case.
