Former Capco partner Ian Bentinck has recently re-joined the firm, after a spell of more than 8 years at City Practitioners and IBM. In his new role Bentinck will, based in the London office, focus on growing Capco’s expanding footprint in the capital markets industry.

Ian Bentinck has over 20 years of financial services experience in consulting and software development, with significant expertise in capital markets. His areas of specialisation include electronic trading, exchange-traded and OTC derivatives and risk management in investment banks. Most recently he served as European Head of Financial Markets at IBM, and before that he worked as Head of Consulting Services at City Practitioners*. Prior to this, Bentinck worked more than 10 years in the consulting industry, for among others Capco, The Berkeley Partnership and Accenture.

“Ian is a real asset to the Capco team,” says Stephen Vinnicombe, CEO of Capco in the UK. “His track record demonstrates his ability to deliver successful transformation programmes and strategic advisory work. We’re confident his deep domain knowledge will help us to continue to grow our business and we’re very excited to have him back on board.”

At the financial services specialist, Bentinck will focus on growing the firm’s capital markets practice, which according to the consultancy is growing quickly. “Important changes are afoot as banks work out how to effectively manage risk and financial controls from front- to back-office in the new regulatory environment. Financial services organisations have an unenviable challenge: how to respond to a multitude of demanding regulatory timelines in a strategic but cost-effective way. We are helping several banks to solve these problems,” comments Bentinck. “I’m excited to get back to the heart of the industry and work on these critical change programmes.”

For Capco it’s the fourth partner addition in a few months’ time. Earlier this year the consultancy hired Jonathan Rose from Barclays, and added Paul Trotter and James Arnett to its partner team.
