Trusted adviser to the banking sector beyond mere transactional expertise Our commitment to the banking sector is strong and goes beyond our ability to provide transactional support and expertise. We understand the needs of the sector, the banks themselves and their customers. The banks and other financial institutions that make up this diverse sector operate in a complex environment that impacts on, and is impacted on by, economics, business, politics, regulation and law — both at national and international level. The post credit crunch years have only added to the complexity of the sector which is under constant scrutiny, yet remains one of the most highly regulated areas of economic activity. Its apparent contraction — measured in terms of lending activity levels — has proved a catalyst for change, attracting new entrants to the sector, rather than its demise.
