Our Leadership

Martin Fiddaman is passionate about supporting the smaller and often neglected clients who struggle to find focused, dedicated and specialist advisors in today’s complex business, regulatory and increasingly disrupted environment.

He saw the opportunity to create a dedicated FI consultancy to champion smaller firms like the overseas Banks in the UK, Challengers and Fintechs. He has first-hand experience of how many of these firms are often ignored, or misunderstood, or simply not covered well by some of the larger consultancies.

Martin is responsible for client management and the initial diagnostics of most assignments.

Our Team

Once the solution has been agreed, the design will be validated and tested with key stakeholders across the organisation and key customers to ensure full alignment. This will be backed up by market research and completion of a full business case to obtain the required resources for a successful implementation.

If Martin does not have the skill set for the recommended solution, he will bring in experts from specialist fields to work with him. An associate network has been built from existing contacts to covering multiple disciplines. Any associates working on a solution are drawn from a network of specialists and alumni built up over many years.
