South Africa

Financial Services 

The financial sector plays a vital role in supporting the economy and while the global crisis is over, the results of the crisis still linger as financial stability is not yet secured both locally and internationally. This leads to a rapidly changing financial services environment where focus remains on issues such as capital and liquidity management, the changing regulatory landscape, cost reduction and an evolving digital world.

Game-changing expertise

The South African financial services sector is highly regarded as having a strong regulatory and legal framework. None the less our regulatory environment is evolving to an even stronger version with a regulatory revolution occurring and the increased focus on protection of customers’ interests.


This will require innovative approaches to business growth across banking, insurance, and investment management. The Financial Services practice is co-ordinated formally across Africa and on a global basis to ensure cohesion, consistency and an ability to deliver quality professional services, wherever our clients operate.
