Best New Consultancy Finalist 2019 Parker Fitgerald

Parker Fitzgerald is a strategic advisor and consulting partner to the world’s leading financial institutions.
Our firm was founded in 2009 as a direct response to the Global Financial Crisis with a clear mission – to restore trust in the financial services sector, through a new way of managing risk.

Headquartered in London, our global network of senior industry practitioners, technical experts and change specialists is trusted by the leaders of the world’s largest financial institutions, regulatory authorities and government agencies.

Our work is focused exclusively on financial services, encompassing banking, capital markets, asset and wealth management, as well as insurance. We help our clients address a broad range of challenges across risk management and regulatory compliance through independent advisory and assurance across three lines of defence. We also provide proprietary technology solutions to reduce the cost of compliance, to address emerging risks and to enable digital transformation.

Our senior leadership has on average 20+ years’ experience within the financial services sector. This allows us to have a deep understanding of the industry as well as opportunities and constraints facing client organisations. This unique blend of practitioner perspective and consulting toolkit has helped us to achieve strong revenue growth as well as an expansion of our client base over recent years.

Parker Fitzgerald is proud to be an active part of the industry fabric. We have been members of leading industry groups including the Institute of International Finance, TheCityUK and UK Finance (previously the British Bankers’ Association) since 2015. These relationships have allowed us to keep a pulse on the industry and be ahead of the curve when it comes to understanding the industry’s opportunities and concerns.

Despite being a relatively young firm, we have made a strong commitment to programmes driving innovation. These include our investments into research and thought leadership, a technology lab, and a graduate programme focused on data science.

Inclusivity and meritocracy are key to our culture. Our values have been clearly articulated and are central to our firm’s mission. We work with the brightest and the best in every part of our firm. We insist on the highest standards, from ourselves and each other, and we share the benefits of the success we create based on merit. We hire, develop and retain people from all cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities, religions and sexual orientations to build a truly inclusive environment.

The best people, insight and methodology can only succeed if they stand on robust foundations. From the implementation of enabling technology, including business management, learning and development, sales and resourcing, to training and development, we are always investing in strengthening our operations and innovating to maintain our forward momentum.
