Trevose Partners continues to work with the very best clients in the Global Banking & Markets industry and has worked hard over many years to build an enviable reputation across the market.

Our key clients are varied and include a wide range of core and sub sectors within Investment Banking, Asset Management, Clearing Houses, Service Providers and Software Vendors. 

The majority of our successes have been demonstrated across Operations, Finance, Compliance, Client Service & Relationship Management, Project & Change Management, and Sales & Business Development.

The Global Banking & Markets industry has undergone massive change in recent years since its recovery from the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, and almost all corners of the sector have been effected.

All major organisations have had to contend with a rising cost base relative to significantly reduced trading revenues, and a reduction in the risk appetite of many of investors and institutions across the board.

These issues have also had to contend with the need to improve the way operational risk is mitigated, whilst trying to maintain and increase levels of service delivery to an ever demanding client base.

Most institutions are counting the cost of two major factors which have become apparent over the last 10 years or so.

The politically generated demands placed upon them from global regulators has proved to be both challenging and costly, with increased pressure to help repair damage to the industry's reputation, and to ensure compliance with a variety of policies.

When times were good, profits were strong and balance sheets were robust, however there has been a continued barrage of industry driven obligations, which has proved to further highlight to the wider industry an acute under investment in technology infrastructure by everyone.
