 Who we are:

We are a young and dynamic management consulting firm that specializes in the asset and wealth management industry. We believe in doing things differently. While we are focussed on our clients and their results, we want to bring them success through asset-based consulting. By bringing a knowledge-based skillset with appropriate tools to our clients, we make faster implementation of change possible.

For this purpose, we have developed (and continue to improve) our unique delivery model with an effective toolset. This also means we invest heavily (up to 20% of our annual revenue) in enabling our people to be the best consultants in our marketplace. The aim is to build out a full servicing model by which we are truly unique to our specific client niche.

Most recently we have launched our Test Automation software which enables clients to quickly automate their regression test cases without any coding. This enables clients to shorten development time and makes more releases possible. While this is popular with clients, we require a self-sufficient solid software engineer with java skills to strengthen our team.
