Our story has seen us consistently delivering and adding value, with a Partner teams made up of senior level executives from the most reputable financial institutions across the globe we have the experience to provide a truly end to end consultancy service. Our approach has seen us make progress with a number of our key proposition; from the announcement of our SRP Managed Services offering and our continued involvement in helping Commercial Banking Clients design and deliver new payments platforms to being named the official consulting partner to both the Plato and PRIIPS consortia.

Central to our success is our people and the propositions they help us provide. Through our commitment to the creation of a flexible working environment and our continued investment in diversity, we have built teams of industry leading experts and have given them the platform to innovate. The results have been the new solutions we have brought to the market in our managed services and IP-led propositions which deliver positive results and reduce cost.
