Since 2007 the Financial Services team has supported a range of clients across Investment & Retail Banking, Cards & Payments, Wealth & Asset Management and Insurance. As the sector evolves we have been increasingly engaged in helping Challenger Banks and FinTechs source the best talent.

We typically support our clients on mandates to hire Heads of Strategy, Heads of Internal Consulting, Heads of Transformation, COOs, Chiefs of Staff and Operational / Commercial Senior level roles in operating units of organisations.

Our independent consulting business gives our clients flexibility when a permanent hire is not required. Since 2014 we have supported the full range of Financial Services businesses in London, Madrid, Paris, Frankfurt, Geneva and Stockholm. These projects aim to achieve a clear set of deliverables agreed between us and the client and generally range from a week to six months in duration. Typical projects would involve five-year strategic planning, digital transformation, go-to-market strategy, new market/competitor assessments, program management office, Fintech implementation and organisational re-design.
