Industry Focus

The digital revolution has brought high degree of disruption to virtually every area of business over recent years and financial services is no exception. Although the industry has gone through a significant amount of change since the financial crisis, the constant penetration of innovation and technology into almost every segment of financial services is something relatively new. The FinTech industry lies at the intersection of the financial services and technology sectors and has grown from its disruptive roots into an industry in its own right; worth in excess of $50bn globally. Continued growth is reliant on a maturing ecosystem; of which Talent is at the very core.


We work across the financial services landscape with investors, VC/PE-backed growth-stage technology companies, consulting and advisory firms as well as innovation teams within larger institutions to identify, attract and develop world-class leadership talent.

  • Market Intelligence
    Research, Market Analysis, Competitor Mapping and Compensation Benchmarking
