02 B financial services


A volatile macroeconomic environment and continued market consolidation, combined with greater regulatory and investor scrutiny, have redefined financial services since the global financial crisis.
The sector’s dynamic businesses must continue to adapt to change to create competitive advantage. This presents significant challenges, but also unprecedented opportunities for new business models.
Disruption in financial services has radically changed the profile of the industry’s senior executives. There is a pressing need to attract talent with the capabilities to master the evolving competitive landscape,
understand sophisticated financial products and the impact of digital technology to drive growth, while managing
reputational risk.

Our financial services specialists have recruited executives at every level and across all functions within the industry globally, including CEOs, COOs, CIOs, other board members and non-executive directors. Our consultants around the world have worked with financial institutions of all sizes through the ups and downs of the economic cycle over many decades to meet their executive resourcing needs, including in:

• asset management and alternative investments
• capital markets and investment banking
• corporate banking
• private wealth management
• insurance
• consumer financial services
• real estate
• financial technology
• risk management
