Financial Services

The financial services industry remains under significant pressure to restructure and rethink strategic priorities following the financial and economic turbulence of the past few years.

Many institutions are struggling to comply with regulatory changes and capital requirements whilst simultaneously improving profitability and return on equity. Many of these institutions are divesting of risky assets and retrenching from non-core services and geographies to focus on core business lines. Simultaneously, the restructuring of balance sheets, bank bail outs and bank failures are creating new strategic opportunities for stable, well capitalised and “new entrant” financial institutions to expand their geographic and customer footprints via acquisitions and mergers.

Our Financial Services team advises financial institutions, governments, Management teams, private equity houses and others with a full suite of M&A services including strategic options, preparation for exit, acquisitions, divestments, buy-outs and capital raisings, advising on UK and cross border transactions.

Our team is fully integrated with Deloitte’s network of more than 20,000 financial services specialists located across the globe providing up-to-date, expert insight into tax, regulatory and general market changes.
