We don’t just give advice, we’re specialists in agile delivery and have a technology centre where we can help you innovate and take advantage of new and disruptive technologies. Clients recognise us as the consultancy in the FS industry that adds most value according to a recent global market research report.

  • Take advantage of new technologies 
  • Mobilise and deliver transformational change.

  • Partner-driven innovationDisruptive technology, waves of regulation and volatile financial markets are driving financial organisations to put innovation high on their corporate agenda. As Innovation and disruption are changing the Nordic (and global) market as a whole, it requires “traditional” organisations to make radical organizational readjustments to stay relevant when their existing customer base matures. 16/09/2016
  • Enter digital leaders: managing attitudes, not technologyFinancial services are undergoing a massive digital shift. Consumer behavior is changing and there is a demand for digital, user-friendly solutions with 24/7 availability. Using technology as the key enabler, disruptive entrants are covering classical banking and insurance needs in new ways. Meanwhile, traditional players constantly fight to stay competitive through new product offerings, digitization of the core, and changed ways of working. 16/09/2016
  • The time for wishful thinking is overWhile most of the Nordic countries were on holiday in the month of July and well into August, the European banking Authority (EBA) was working hard to finalise its most recent proposal to increase clarity for stakeholders on the PSD2 regulation. More specifically, the focus has been on Article 98 of PSD2, which requires the EBA to develop draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS). 16/09/2016
  • Interview with Björn WahlroosWe recently spoke to Björn Wahlroos, the chairman of the board at Nordea, Sampo and UPM. In a wide ranging interview he outlined his views on Brexit, regulation, the future of banking and his plans for Nordea. 16/09/2016
