Capco Expands UK Capital Markets Leadership Team as Industry Undergoes Fundamental Reforms

Subscribe to our newsletter

Capco, the global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, has appointed Rob Deakin as a Partner within its UK capital markets leadership team, where he will be working with Tier One investment banks on improving the performance of their technology organisations.

Rob joins Capco with significant consulting expertise in investment banking and investment management having worked at Accenture for 11 years. He has extensive experience of successfully delivering large-scale business and technology transformation programmes. Rob specialises in the design and implementation of target operating models, low-latency trading technologies and off-shoring.

Rob Deakin, Capco Partner, said: “Investment banks are under significant pressure to improve their cost/income ratios. With their revenue trajectories limited by increasing capital requirement and regulatory constraints, banks are working with Capco to optimise their costs while better aligning technology spend to business strategy in order to improve margins.

“While headlines may have focused on headcount, financial institutions are undergoing more fundamental reform, reassessing their IT strategy, spend and operating model in order to meet the demands of this changing business environment. Aligning technology with business strategy provides competitive advantage and Capco believes that regulators will be increasingly likely to intervene where this is not the case.”

Andrew Tarver, Capco UK CEO, said: “Capco has a longstanding presence in the capital markets domain, providing companies working in this sector with expert business and technology consultancy services. Rob brings with him a wealth of expertise and experience to Capco’s capital markets team, which will enhance and develop our offering in this area.”
