Our MD, Stuart Hicks, spoke to Yorkshire Business Insider this week about how 2019 looked for The City & Capital Group, as well as what 2020 has in store for the financial services industry. In case you missed the piece, catch up on our comments below.
2019. The year of the stop, start, revert and repeat. With political and economic uncertainty so prevalent for our financial services clients, it really has been a tough year for many to plan and progress with the confidence they would like – and have become accustomed to – in the latter half of this decade.
In these moments there is a pattern as old as time. The consolidators will (continue) to rise in their quest for market share, leaving the necessary pockets for the innovators and market disruptors who bring real change and challenge to the status quo. The latter being to the ultimate benefit of the customers they serve.
It is in these pockets that The City & Capital Group intends to deliver in 2020, both in terms of innovation within our own industry, as well as consulting for those who strive to deliver positive and impactful change for service users in their specialist markets.
