Capco, a leading management and technology consultancy focused on the financial services industry, is pleased to announce the opening of its office in Stockholm, Sweden, which forms part of its growth strategy and is in response to an increasing demand for its services in the Nordic region.
Technology and disruptive innovations are increasing at an unprecedented pace in the Nordics due to the acceleration in regional growth, and as new technologies are being created in the region. As a result, the financial services industry needs to stay ahead of these trends to meet customer expectations. As a leading management and technology consultancy dedicated to the financial services industry, Capco is seeing strong demand for its services from leading local banks and financial institutions in the region, and Capco’s industry experience will be highly beneficial to Nordic companies.
As part of the firm’s expansion in the region, Anette Tånneryd has been appointed as Managing Partner and will lead the Stockholm office. Anette is an entrepreneurial leader with over 20 years’ experience in growing financial services businesses globally, and has an excellent track record in helping clients innovate to transform their businesses. Anette joins Capco from Accenture, where she was Managing Director of the financial services team in Sweden. She also previously worked at IBM, and in her early career co-founded two different start-ups in Sweden and the US. Annette brings extensive experience in the Nordic markets to her new role.
Capco has already built a strong position in the Nordics, having worked with Nordic clients since 2013, and the new office in Stockholm reinforces the firm’s expanding presence in the region. Capco works with clients to leverage its deep-domain expertise, design-thinking approach, and technology acumen to help companies navigate this changing market environment.
Lance Levy, Chief Executive of Capco said: “We are very excited to be opening an office in the Nordics, and it marks a significant step as we continue to grow our global footprint. Our clients are focused on staying competitive as well as managing regulatory issues, reducing costs, and increasing efficiency through innovation. They want to work with a trusted and experienced consultancy to help them adapt to the rapidly changing market landscape.

Capco’s new Stockholm office, led by Anette, will better support this market demand, and enable us to leverage our global expertise to help local clients find innovative solutions to stay ahead of these issues. We are delighted to have Anette join the team. With her experience and knowledge, we believe she is the right person to lead Capco to the next stage of our development in the region. We look forward to continuing to deliver exceptional value, expertise and solutions to our clients in the Nordics.”
