Ian Holden, Partner:
"Retail banking is going through some major changes at the moment. Successful financial institutions must remain relevant to the fast changing demands of a market driven by regulatory requirements and client sophistication, while reducing operating cost and increasing efficiency for the future. The shake-up of the brand names consumers are seeing on the high street - resulting from building society mergers and the aggressive entry of new players - add to the sense of change in the market.
"I am delighted to be joining Capco at this time. The increase in demand from their customers is validation that banks require deep industry experience from the consulting partners they elect to work with to tackle business critical issues. The banking team at Capco is well positioned to advise its clients on how to best address the challenges in today's dynamic market. The team's deep industry understanding crosses the breadth of the sector, from retail banking to lending and payments, with its knowledge of multichannel marketing and distribution cutting across these."
