The financial institutions sector operates against a backdrop of rapid development, managed risk, stringent regulation and fluctuating economic conditions. As the current economic outlook tightens, the sector is coming under ever-increasing scrutiny and the operating environment for firms remains pressured.
With business models being tested, the need for firms to mitigate risk and adapt to market conditions is paramount. Businesses require their advisers to combine technical expertise with market insight and experience.
