Financial Services

The Financial Services (FS) Practice covers both Wholesale and Retail FS, with individual Consultants specialising in one or the other.

We are a significant player in the Commercial & Investment Banking sector, Asset Management, Retail Banking, General Insurance and Life, covering "C" Suite, front office, back & middle office and functional roles, such as finance, technology, sales, regulatory, risk etc.

We are particularly strong at servicing clients whose requirements benefit from a collaboration between our FS practice and Hoggett Bowers' other practices. More specifically in the Infrastructure/Real Assets world or where other industries are beginning to fill the vacuum left by a shrunken Financial Services sector, such as Property Services, Professional Services and Independent Advisory firms. This is often accomplished by allocating one consultant from each practice to ensure that understanding of the requirement goes far deeper than just the FS viewpoint and incorporates the industry-eye view too.
