London, 19th December 2018 – Delta Capita, the international FS consulting and managed services firm, has hired Tracey Allen to lead the client experience team for their KYC business line.  She will be based at Delta Capita’s UK headquarters in Canary Wharf, London.

With more than 15 years KYC industry experience, Allen most recently headed up the Client Experience team at Thomson Reuters, within their risk managed services division and prior to that, was an Executive Director within EMEA Client Onboarding at Goldman Sachs.

Earlier this year, Delta Capita and the industry leader in CLM technology Fenergo, announced their strategic partnership and their commitment to launch managed service solutions for solving client onboarding, regulatory compliance, and entity data management challenges.

Delta Capita, who recently ranked as Europe’s fastest growing FS professional services firm in the 2018 Financial Times 1000 index, has seen significant growth in its managed services solutions.  In 2017, Credit Suisse outsourced its EMEA structured products platform to Delta Capita, which now services several leading manufacturing banks.  In 2018, Delta Capita acquired Pall Mall, the non-financial risk and conduct advisory firm led by David Long, the former Credit Suisse EMEA Group COO, to spearhead a ‘first line of defence’ managed service proposition, which aims to significantly reduce control costs in the front office domain.

Allen commented “I am very pleased to be joining Delta Capita at such an exciting time.  They have achieved demonstrable success in establishing credible managed service propositions and are investing heavily in new services covering common banking functions and regulation such as KYC.  Their service model uniquely allows banks flexible access to industry best practice, expertise and modern technology, operated under a mutualised cost model.”

Allen added, “The economics no longer stack up for banks wanting to respond to common regulation in a proprietary way and I am convinced that managed service solutions are the only viable way forward for the industry.”

Joe Channer, Delta Capita, Founder & CEO, added “We are delighted that Tracey is joining our KYC managed services senior management team.  She is a recognised industry financial crime and client onboarding expert who will help us develop a service model that delivers a differentiating client experience.”

26th November 2018 (London) Delta Capita, the international business & technology consulting and managed services firm, has announced its acquisition of Pall Mall Risk Reduction a London-based consultancy specialising in non-financial and conduct risk management for Banks and Investment firms.

Pall Mall Risk Reduction was established by three former senior executives from Credit Suisse, founded by David Long who held various senior positions at Credit Suisse during his 30 years at the bank. Most recently, David was head of Strategic Initiatives at Credit Suisse, a role that included planning for its business model after the Brexit referendum. Previously, he was also the Group Chief Operating Officer for the EMEA region.

The other co-founders of Pall Mall Risk Reduction include:

  • Nick Wilcock, who was latterly Deputy EMEA COO for Credit Suisse and formerly President of its Moscow bank during his 25 years at the bank.
  • Charanpal Matharu, who spent 13 years at Credit Suisse and was instrumental in pioneering the Front Office Supervisory practices and the First Line of Defence Controls Officer function within Global Markets.

The acquisition follows an impressive growth story at Delta Capita, who recently ranked as Europe’s fastest growing FS consulting firm in the 2018 Financial Times 1000 index. The timing of the acquisition will be welcomed by the industry as it braces itself for major transformational change and regulation such as Brexit readiness and an increased focus on non-financial risk management, which will have a very significant impact on industry participants.

Commenting on the acquisition, David Long said “We are very excited to be joining Delta Capita, our clients will benefit from the significantly increased capability and as skilled practitioners we are very much aligned to the DNA of Delta Capita. Combining Pall Mall Risk Reduction’s advisory business with Delta Capita’s proven technology and managed service capabilities will allow us to bring to market new innovative products and services that will greatly reduce the cost of control and compliance for our clients.”

Joe Channer, Delta Capita, Founder & CEO, added “This is a strategically important acquisition for Delta Capita, as we look to complement our financial risk practice with a non-financial risk capability to establish a complete advisory and managed services offering in the risk domain. The breaking up of the banking value chain is establishing new eco-systems that are being occupied by FinTechs, service providers and industry collaboration initiatives, all powered by adoption of modern technology and infrastructure. We believe non-financial and conduct risk management will dramatically benefit from this market evolution.”

Delta Capita, the managed services provider and international business and technology consulting firm, has been appointed by Credit Suisse, one of the leading European issuers of structured products and structured product solutions, as service provider for issuance and product governance of its structured products business across EMEA.

Delta Capita will transfer over a number of the existing Credit Suisse team as part of the appointment, increasing capabilities and accelerating the growth of its structured product issuance and governance managed service offering.

“We have seen real commitment across the structured products industry to improve product governance standards and the quality of products for end clients,” said Larry Fletcher, head of Credit Suisse’ Solutions business in EMEA. “New regulation will standardise the way in which products are packaged and delivered which provides an opportunity for the industry to work together to improve standards whilst lowering costs for end customers. We expect Delta Capita to be a leading player in delivering these improvements.”

The announcement follows Delta Caita’s appointment as managed service provider to the Plato partnership in September 2016 and appointment earlier this year to a consortium of banks responding to the regulation on key information documents for Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs).

Joe Channer, Chief Executive Officer of Delta Capita, added: “By working closely with our clients to support their specific needs, not only is there a clear path to achieving best practice in product governance, but an opportunity to deliver a utility for structured product production. We expect this to result in more consistent standards, lowering of costs and improving efficiency. The upshot is that our customers will be allowed to focus their efforts on product development for their clients safe in the knowledge that they have a scalable and high quality service, coupled with a platform capable of supporting their business.”

Every little helps when it comes to controlling the financial system, but Giles Kenwright of Delta Capita explains why the Tesco cyber-attack will hopefully trigger banks and regulators to look at the bigger compliance picture .

A cyber-attack that wiped £2.5 million from a major supermarket’s client accounts in just a few hours, should ring alarm bells across the boardrooms of Britain’s biggest banks. While the damage to Tesco’s brand reputation may be substantial, more significant still is that this attack could be a sign of things to come for the wider banking sector.
