John Buckeridge has been appointed as a Senior Consultant with financial services specialist Hansuke Consulting. Previously Buckeridge worked as a Consultant at law firm Eversheds Sutherland, and also spent 14 years at HMRC as a Policy and Technical Adviser.

Financial services and regulatory work makes up one of the largest areas of demand in the UK consulting market. Following several bumper years driven by Brexit and a number of landmark regulatory changes, however, public sector and financial services consulting both endured a challenging 2019, with the latter’s growth of 7% in 2017 falling to 4.1% last year, as clients try to use internal resources to do the work.

Hansuke Consulting is a London-based specialist financial services consulting firm working with leading financial institutions across a number of disciplines. The firm helps clients make lasting improvements to their performance and realise their most important goals. As it looks to secure its future amid a consulting market that seems to be enduring its worst drop in growth in seven years, Hansuke has drafted in finance veteran John Buckeridge as a Senior Consultant.

Having initially worked as a Mathematics Teacher and Lecturer for 23 years, Buckeridge brings 20 years of regulatory, financial services and advisory experience to Hansuke. His first foray into this kind of work saw him join HMRC as an Inspector of Taxes in 2000. By the time he exited the organisation in 2015, he had risen to the role of Policy and Technical Adviser – which he worked as for almost a decade. During this time, Buckeridge worked closely with senior industry representatives and committees, regulatory bodies and HM Treasury and Ministers, to develop tax legislation for collective investment schemes and their investors.

Buckeridge then spent four years as a Consultant with international law firm Eversheds Sutherland, working on matters related to investment funds and both direct and indirect taxation. Buckeridge is now a Senior Principal with Hansuke, following completion of his role with Eversheds.
