Deloitte has appointed Guy Stevens to its Financial Institutions Group, as it looks to build on strong momentum from the last year. The new Partner brings more than two decades of expertise to the role, having served in similar positions with some of the world’s largest investment banks.

Commenting on his new role, Guy Stevens stated, “I am delighted to join an impressive Financial Institutions Group (FIG) team which is fast building a reputation for providing clients with deeply analytical advice. Deloitte is well positioned to provide strategic solutions during a testing time for the industry. I anticipate working closely with my colleagues as we seek to expand our client relationships across EMEA.”

Stevens joins Deloitte as a Partner within the Big Four firm’s Corporate Finance Advisory business. As part of the FIG team, he will focus on enhancing relationships with a number of Deloitte’s most important banking and insurance clients across EMEA.

Guy Stevens joins Deloitte's Corporate Finance Advisory businessIn order to fulfil that role, Stevens will be able to rely on more than 20 years of experience in the investment banking industry, most recently at UBS. During his time with the financial institution, he was a Managing Director and Head of UBS’ own FIG business for Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as covering large cap banks in the UK and Western Europe. He has previously also held senior FIG roles at Citigroup and Rothschild & Co.

Deloitte has been building its FIG team under Jonathan Gold, Head of FIG Corporate Finance Advisory. According to him, the team now aims at continuing to invest in the business over the course of the year, and seek to deliver top service to its clients across M&A, credit portfolio solutions and balance sheet advisory.

Gold, who is also a Partner with Deloitte, added, “I look forward to working with Guy to build upon our strong momentum in the financial services sector… Guy’s deep sector and deal-making expertise will be invaluable as we deliver bespoke, innovative solutions to new and existing financial services clients.”

The move comes at a time when large asset managers and banks in Europe face greater pressure to consolidate. For example, as the coronavirus pandemic prompts renewed interest in bank consolidation across Europe, it was reported late last year that a mega-merger could see UBS and Credit Suisse merge in a way that would enable both to boom in a future economic recovery.
