Financial Services & FinTech: Talent, Succession and Growth
Over the last decade, Carlyle have partnered with multiple start-up, SME and listed organisations across Financial Services to deliver Search, Interim and Board & Advisory mandates; enabling our team to identify and engage first-hand with changing trends across the sector. As part of the Scotsman Fintech Scotland Supplement, Carlyle investigates how the increasingly customer-centric approach and rapid pace of change now required in Financial Services organisations is impacting talent and succession strategies.
Duggie Carlyle, Founding Partner of Carlyle, said: “Our world is changing at unprecedented speed. Customers’ expectations have evolved and businesses are having to adapt to meet the demand for real-time, flexible and personalised services. Large Financial Services organisations are investing significant time and resources in understanding a consumer base that is growing in sophistication and are now appreciating that they may need to look outside their own sector for the tools and talent to achieve this.”
Fiona James-Martin, Partner and Head of Carlyle’s Interim practice, describes how talent requirements are changing: “There is a real focus on creating innovative propositions which pro-actively anticipate and address the needs of the consumer. We are increasingly being asked to identify senior talent who can bring an entrepreneurial mindset and more agile ways of working to businesses within the Financial Services sector.”
