Head of Fintech – Financial Services, Accenture
Would you like to head Accenture Norway’s relationship and partnership building with the most promising and inspiring Fintechs in the Nordics?
The rise of challenger banks, platform players moving into banking and Fintechs, with flexible cloud-based core systems and focus on seamless customer experience, are increasingly putting pressure on incumbent banks and generating an accelerating revenue shift. Due to capital requirements, most Fintechs have mainly focused on payments and other less capital-intensive parts of the banking value chain. However, we see an ongoing shift with Fintechs starting to target mortgages and other core banking offerings. In the UK, the situation is already pronounced with Fintechs grabbing up to 14% of the entire banking revenue pool. In the Nordics, which is increasingly taking a position as a European Fintech hub, it is expected that we will see a similar scene in the near future. Faced by this trend, Nordic banks are lining up partnerships, acquisitions, establishing venture funds and accelerators. Yet, the increasing activity in the Fintech market is also making it challenging to navigate.
At Accenture Financial Services we find this situation intriguing. We work with the largest banks and insurance companies across the Nordics, and have a wide range of established partnerships with Fintechs and start-ups. Mixed with our deep technical and industry expertise, we are perfectly positioned to spot the opportunities that arise from the wave of Fintechs entering the market. We are able to help our banking clients to navigate, assist Fintech partners grow their business and create value. To strengthen our position further, we are now looking for a skilled individual with a strong interest and passion to lead the Fintech space of our business and help ensure we stay ahead of our competitors.
