HONG KONG, October 7th, 2021 – Capco, the global technology and management consultancy, has announced the appointment of Steve Halliwell as Head of South East Asia, with responsibility for growing Capco’s business and supporting its clients across Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
A Capco Partner since 2013, Steve has transferred to Singapore from the company’s New York office. In that US leadership role, he oversaw and grew key relationships across a range of Tier 1 global financial institutions as part of a significant expansion of Capco’s US business during this period. In his new APAC role, he will be focused on driving Capco’s dynamic growth strategy and talent acquisition program in the region.
Prior to joining Capco, Steve spent 14 years working in senior roles within financial services in the US, Japan and the UK, during which time his responsibilities included major design, build and implementation initiatives across the front office, operations and technology.
James Arnett, APAC Managing Partner at Capco, said: “Steve brings over 20 years’ of experience at the leading edge of financial services change programs, working in close partnership with a range of global banks. With our deep domain knowledge, Capco is strongly positioned to support financial institutions across the Asia-Pacific region in reengineering their businesses to better navigate today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. With his new responsibility for three of the region’s most dynamic markets, Steve will be instrumental in delivering on that ambition.”
Steve Halliwell said: “I’m delighted to have this opportunity to return to APAC at such a transformative moment for financial services – and Capco – in the region. We are seeing high levels of engagement among institutions around wealth management, particularly in respect of digitalization opportunities and mobile-focused solutions. There is also tremendous demand in the data space in terms of innovation around analytics and aggregation. Insurance is also very much front and center for us, given the growing influence of insurtechs within the sector and the potential they bring to reshape solutions and customer journeys. I look forward to working with our clients and the wider industry to realize their change and innovation goals.”
