Our Industries


Financial Technology has been a major driver of change within the financial services domain since the 1950s but we have observed accelerated disruption in this space over the last 10 years. Driven by the advent of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, machine learning, peer-to-peer transactions as well as changing consumer habits, we have seen FinTech companies no longer simply enhancing traditional banking services but replacing them altogether. Consequently, incumbents have realised the need to innovate and collaborate with the new era of technology firms to sustain their competitive advantage in the digital age.

Wilton & Bain’s Financial Technology practice works at the intersection between established financial firms looking to accelerate their digital transformation behaviours and disruptive, rapid-growth technology organisations looking to sustainably scale their market footprint. We do this by providing a range of human capital services including board-level advisory capability, competitor analysis and talent identification & attraction that empowers organisations to unlock their next level of growth.
