Notes to editors
In a report of January 2010, Datamonitor said: “Capco’s efficiencies allow them to economically carry a high degree of internal expertise with a compelling proposition: the company possesses the scale and multiple offerings of a large firm, but with the nimbleness of a boutique. Datamonitor expects opportunities over 2010 and 2011 in financial services to benefit a small number of vendors, rather than the general market: Capco appears well placed to be one of these winning firms.”
