Digital is dominating the corporate landscape, transforming institutions and their interactions with customers. To succeed in a digitised marketplace, it’s vital to deliver strategic innovations, whilst maintaining the structure and service level of core operations. Nowhere is this truer than in the financial services sector.

Leathwaite is a trusted partner for digital transformation. We advise and support clients across all functions, including operations, technology, marketing and general management, as well as rapidly evolving positions within data, analytics, mobile and cyber security.

As our clients build and develop their digital capability, the origin of candidates has become increasingly varied. Financial services firms, for example, recognise the benefit of hiring individuals with a diverse background, especially for traditional but evolving executive roles in IT and digital functions.

Case Study:

The financial services sector is undergoing rapid transformation, but wealth management has been playing catch up. Here, customers tend to be slightly more apprehensive about digital innovations; they seek an experience that combines digital functions with a personal (advisory) touch.

Our client, a global asset and wealth management business, was keen to get ahead of its competitors during this pivotal time of digital change. As such, they committed significant investment to help transform the business, and sought a high calibre candidate to lead the initiative.

Leathwaite conducted a global executive search across multiple industries, selecting a number of talented individuals suitable for the role and culture of this wealth management firm.

After several interviews, the client successfully hired the Chief Digital Officer of a global insurer. The organisation now has a steadfast roadmap for digitisation, giving them a head-start as they build stronger client relationships and reduce operating costs.
