Johannesburg based team continues to expand to serve Africa-based financial services institutions

Capco, a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, celebrated the first anniversary of the opening of its Johannesburg based office this month.

Over the course of the last twelve months, Capco’s South African management team has successfully recruited a strong team of financial services consultants, establishing Capco’s brand in South Africa. Backed by a global network of 16 offices on four continents, deep industry expertise and fact-based thought leadership in the form of the award-winning Capco Journal of Financial Transformation, the team has made significant inroads to growing Capco’s South African market presence. The local team is currently serving three major financial services clients, addressing market issues including:

  • Assisting with the design and deployment of a new core banking system across 13 African countries
  • Managing the centralisation of IT Operations from Offshore regional areas into South Africa
  • Tailoring Capco’s IT complexity model to establish the relevant complexity of a client’s IT estate, to determine how the model can be applied to enhance overall decision making

The Capco South African office is based in the heart of the Johannesburg financial district and is led by financial services consulting expert, Bruce Gordon, supported by a strong management team with combined financial services knowledge of more than 50 years.

Gordon comments: “The past year has been a year of great excitement for Capco, as we have successfully established a foothold in the South African market to serve clients across the African continent. I am delighted to have such a strong and experienced team on board, and to be able to leverage the global talent and experience of Capco around the globe. We are seeing continued healthy levels of demand for our services, and as a result are recruiting individuals at all levels with deep experience in financial services.”

“2011 has been a great year for Capco in South Africa. We have secured a solid presence on an important continent, and are delighted to have added a number of experienced individuals to the global Capco presence. The market clearly has an appetite for consulting firms who have deep industry know-how, which is something our clients consistently tell us they value. I look forward to continuing to expand our presence in South Africa and to serving clients across the broader African continent, and wish Bruce and his growing team continued success,” added Peter Schurau, CEO of Capco Europe.
