Parker Fitzgerald, the strategic adviser and consulting partner to the world’s leading financial institutions, has claimed one of the top gongs at the prestigious Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Awards.
The firm was named Best New Consultancy at the 2019 awards ceremony in London last night – 10 years after it was founded as a direct response to the Global Financial Crisis to restore trust in the financial services sector through a new way of managing risk.
Parker Fitzgerald was also a finalist for the Best Use of Thought Leadership Award for its collaboration with UK Finance, a trade association representing 250 financial services firms. The latter partnership led to the joint-branded report, ‘Sustainable Financial Services in the Digital Age’, exploring how financial institutions, technology firms and the regulatory community could work together to proactively manage operational resilience in today’s digital age.
In addition, the firm was named a finalist for the Innovation in Digital & Technology Award for its partnership with UBS investment bank on a pioneering project to prove the value and practical application of data driven predictive analytics.
Scott Vincent, Chief Executive Officer, Parker Fitzgerald, said: “We are delighted to have won Best New Consultancy at the MCA Awards and to have been a finalist for the Best Use of Thought Leadership and Innovation in Digital & Technology awards. It is an honour to be recognised as both a challenger consulting brand and thought leader.
“In the decade since our establishment, we have seen the operating environment for financial services shift significantly. As well as economic and regulatory risks, firms are being increasingly challenged by a growing array of threats from technology use, political tensions and climate change.
“Helping our clients to optimise their performance in a rapidly evolving risk environment remains our utmost priority. We are dedicated to continuing our role as a trusted partner to the financial industry through our thought leadership, independent advice and delivery excellence.”
