Deloitte boosts financial services analytics offering with new partner appointment
6 December 2012
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has announced the appointment of financial services regulatory specialist, Angus Wildblood, as an analytics partner to its Enterprise Risk Services (ERS) practice.
Angus joins Deloitte from Capco, a global business and technology consultancy group, where he was a financial services partner. Prior to this, Angus worked with Lloyds Banking Group in its global payments business, responsible for shaping and delivering global regulatory programmes and supporting consolidation of the Group’s payments business. He came to Lloyds after spending 20 years with Accenture’s financial services business.
Angus will advise businesses on ways to manage sustainable regulatory change. By using insight gained through data analytics, Angus will help companies understand the impact of key regulatory challenges such as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, anti-money laundering, sanctions and broader payments regulation.
Tom Scampion, data analytics lead partner, commented: “Financial services organisations are facing significant regulatory pressure and dealing with an increased level of enforcement across the sector. Getting to grips with each new piece of legislation and regulation is a challenge, but Angus’ experience will help our clients stay on the front foot.”
Angus Wildblood said: “In a fast-changing regulatory landscape, data analytics can play a significant role in highlighting where risk may lie. The analysis can both improve control and mitigate risks, as well as giving financial services organisations a better understanding of their customers. The effective use of data analytics should be a critical component of any financial institution today.”
