Regulators, innovators and disruptors

The 2008 financial crisis triggered increases in regulation and raised levels of scrutiny from media, regulators and investors right across the world. This, coupled with volatile markets, rising interest rates and digital disruption fuelled by rapid technological advances, is driving competition throughout the sector and the need to deliver exceptional customer experience and service levels has never been greater.

Consequently, we are seeing higher levels of disruption and investment in the emergence ‘start-up banks’, fintechs and innovations hubs. This growth, and the determination of long-established financial institutions to compete with challenger brands, has created unprecedented competition for the very best talent across the sector. We are proud to be entrusted by some of the most progressive players in the sector to source and place this talent.
