Two leading specialist financial services change management consultancies partner to offer an enhanced service
Bishopsgate Financial’s expertise in transformation, change management, compliance and financial crime will combine with CubeMatch’s capabilities in strategic change, risk management and technology
Bishopsgate Financial, the financial services change management consultancy, announces it has been acquired by CubeMatch Ltd. This move will create one of the UK’s largest independent financial services change management consultancies, with major global financial institutions as its client base.
CubeMatch and Bishopsgate Financial share the same vision, and are committed to ensuring financial services organisations facing large change programmes can complete them in an effective and timely manner.
Both firms offer consultancy, resource augmentation and managed services enabling change programmes to be embedded in their clients’ businesses. Bishopsgate Financial’s core specialisms are in business change, compliance and financial crime which combines powerfully with CubeMatch’s expertise in strategic change, business and digital transformation, risk and compliance, data and technology, quality assurance and managed services.
The existing Bishopsgate Financial management team will remain in place, and assignments with existing clients will continue uninterrupted. The two management teams will come together to enable the wider capability to be made available to the firms’ joint client base.
Andrew Seymour, MD of CubeMatch UK, said “Our focus is helping financial services firms develop the skills, attitude and technology toolsets to cope with tomorrow’s challenges today. The CubeMatch approach is about blending deep domain expertise with a highly rigorous approach to project deployment to ensure our clients are future fit. Bishopsgate Financial has the same ethos as us, along with a significant proven track record in ensuring banks embed robust financial crime and compliance protocols. When this experience is combined with our expertise around strategic change, risk and technology, we offer a highly powerful proposition to our clients.”
Mike Hampson, CEO Bishopsgate Financial adds, “The pace and scale of change in financial services shows no sign of abating. Our clients know the challenges they need to prepare for are complex and they need partners with the combination of sophisticated specialist knowledge held across multiple fields. This transaction will provide an enhanced service offering to our clients as well as enabling us to service them in a wider number of geographies, I am excited to be becoming part of the CubeMatch team.”
