We believe Capco is in a really advantageous position. Our focus on the financial services industries, which continue to be in tremendous flux, has
driven our continued growth from the fourth quarter of 2011 through 2012. We
have had an increase in major transformational engagements, clients, many
of which grew from trust we built on smaller projects in previous years. We
have also gained new top-tier clients as our solutions set has grown, and we
continue to build our roster.
OF THE SALES &
One sign of increased demand is
the fact that clients are continuing to come to Capco to build solutions in response to the new
regulatory environment. Many of
our clients are taking the opportunity to go beyond just “
checking the box” to actually better
their business through these initiatives and there is no sign that
these engagements are slowing.
types of engagements we are seeing more of include: sourcing, architecture and target operating
models. The market is looking for innovative solutions, and Capco continues to bring the top people together to develop these solutions for our
clients. One major opportunity for Capco is greater
engagements with current clients to cross-sell additional services. We are getting to know our
clients on a deeper level. Our 360-degree view of
our clients enables us to develop solutions quickly
to help clients adapt as market conditions change.
As we head into 2013, we expect to see continued
growth for Capco. We plan to continue making investments in our own infrastructure and personnel
to serve clients. The practice areas we see leading
the way in 2013 are wealth and investment management, capital markets and technology. The
The War For Talent is Back
One of the challenges we see is the war for talent,
not only hiring—but maintaining and sustaining
the level of talent. We plan to continue recruiting
the best professionals, as well as work to maintain
our high level of satisfaction among employees, by
ensuring that they work on interesting projects. It’s
a good challenge, but it’s a challenge all the same.
THE BOSTON CONSULTING GROUP
This was another strong year for BCG. Despite all the challenges in the global economy, we were able to help many of
our clients improve their growth trajectory. We also invested
heavily in our people, industry knowledge and functional capabilities. If there was one theme for us in 2012, it was to invest in strengthening our capabilities and growing our team.
We’re seeing continued growth in all of our regions and in
virtually all of our practices. Interestingly, in some of the
most economically uncertain parts of the world, we’ve had
some of our very best years ever. Clients that are facing
enormous challenges and change view BCG as a firm that
can navigate through very uncharted waters and then take
insights and turn them into real competitive advantage.
