Focus on Financial Services

Moon Consulting’s Financial Services sector focuses on attracting strategic leaders to a continually fluctuating and fast-paced environment. The global finance markets have seen a dramatic overhaul in recent years, with fundamental changes in regulations and legislation, as well as urgent calls for transparency across the board. The United Kingdom’s position in the global economy has strengthened over the last 10 years, becoming the fourth largest banking sector in the world. Spanning a vast range of sub-sectors, the Financial Services industry makes a vital contribution to both local and global economies, providing employment for over 2 million UK residents (The City UK – Financial Services UK by Region).
