Insurance Leader – Principal Consultant (m/f/d)

Financial Services Consulting / Venture & Product Building

The Company

The vision of our client is to build the leading challenger firm within Financial Services by pairing leading business and technology expertise. 20 years ago, insurance companies and banks had to compete with their peers, and today, they have to compete with global tech companies. However, throughout this time, the setup of the global consulting landscape has stayed pretty much the same.

Founded in October 2022 by the EMEA Financial Services Practice Lead Partner of a leading US strategy consultancy and a builder of multiple leading software companies, our client already brings together the best of both worlds: Deep functional Financial Services domain expertise/networks, and a track record of how to build and invest into leading software product companies.

To properly advise Fortune 500 Financial Services companies in today’s and tomorrow’s world, our client believes in creating a new ecosystem that combines the knowledge of tech, venture and product building with that of leading financial service domains.

Join this great team of experts in supporting the clients in all kinds of strategic transformations as well as the three key domains: Cyber Security, Data Analytics & AI and ESG/Climate Tech.
