In an age of transformation, we have a responsibility to help the financial services industry support a world where everyone can benefit from sustainable and inclusive growth.

In today’s business environment, a concern for sustainability is no longer optional. The world faces increasing competition for resources, a ballooning population that’s expected to reach 9.5 billion by 2050 and accelerating climate change. 

Our interest in delivering long-term success extends beyond our clients, to our people and our communities.

The use of technologies, such as FinTech, artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, are reshaping how businesses operate. At the same time, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors are increasingly being incorporated into decision-making, and their value is making their way onto balance sheets.

Through our work with clients, our wider relationships and giving our time and talent, we help the financial services industry address the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the other global challenges.

For our communities, our ambition is to harness the power of our people through traditional and skill-based volunteering, with a strong focus on the latter.

Our social impact programs focus on supporting the next generation and scaling impact entrepreneurship.

That’s why, across our EMEIA Financial Services practice, we recruit, train, and nurture a diverse set of people who dedicate their minds to the future of financial services. Together, we focus on delivering innovative and entrepreneurial thinking and product solutions to our clients for both today and tomorrow
