In the 1950s we helped the Bank of England dramatically reduce banknote forgery. And we’re still having an impact in financial services, working with clients ranging from asset managers, banks and insurance companies to regulators and infrastructure providers. 

We don’t just give advice, we’re specialists in agile delivery and have a technology centre where we can help you innovate and take advantage of new and disruptive technologies. Clients recognise us as the consultancy in the FS industry that adds most value according to a recent global market research report. And because our clients cover both regulators and regulated firms, we have unique insight into the industry that cannot be matched by other consultancies. 

There are three key areas where we make the difference: simplification, disruptive technology, and risk and regulation.

We can help you:

  • Take costs out of your operations at the same time as remaining compliant and enhancing customer service
  • Take advantage of new technologies 
  • Mobilise and deliver transformational change.

We can help you:

  • Get the right controls in place to better respond to regulatory change and challenge
  • Respond to areas of non-compliance

  • Enter digital leaders: managing attitudes, not technologyFinancial services are undergoing a massive digital shift. Consumer behavior is changing and there is a demand for digital, user-friendly solutions with 24/7 availability. Using technology as the key enabler, disruptive entrants are covering classical banking and insurance needs in new ways. Meanwhile, traditional players constantly fight to stay competitive through new product offerings, digitization of the core, and changed ways of working. 16/09/2016
  • Partner-driven innovationDisruptive technology, waves of regulation and volatile financial markets are driving financial organisations to put innovation high on their corporate agenda. As Innovation and disruption are changing the Nordic (and global) market as a whole, it requires “traditional” organisations to make radical organizational readjustments to stay relevant when their existing customer base matures. 16/09/2016
