Financial services

During the last 10 years following the global recession the financial services industry has undergone substantive changes. We’ve helped our clients to navigate this evolution, partnering with challenger brands and global institutions including NatWest Group, TSB, London Stock Exchange and Kensington Mortgages. It is one of the industries we know best and our experts have garnered great experience of helping financial services clients to tackle their biggest people challenges.

Common industry challenges

  • Unstable economy/impact of high street struggles and Brexit
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Shifting ‘risk culture’
  • Skills gaps/retaining millennial talent (particularly for insurers)
  • Headcount reduction
