Our Financial Services (‘FS’) Consulting team is a team of 100 professionals with a variety of backgrounds and experience across the insurance, banking, Regulation and asset & wealth management (AWM) sectors. Our team have a range of skills, spanning strategic, operational and specialist regulatory experience to solve complex problems for our clients, many of whom are global financial institutions.This team is part of the wider Consulting team of 450 people, who work in PwC Ireland’s Advisory Line of Service. 

Our clients include well-known local and global financial institutions, who have engaged our team to help with: 

  • Large scale transformation programmes, including Managed Change programmes

Our multi-disciplinary teams are structured to best meet our clients’ requirements, with appropriate skills, expertise and levels ranging from in-depth technical knowledge through to hands-on practical experience.
