Ernst & Young Named Top Consulting Organization for Financial Services“Demand for consultancy services has increased in this era of regulatory change, and in turn, we have seen a continued up-tick in demand worldwide for advisory services across asset management, banking and capital markets, and insurance sectors,” said Hank Prybylski, Global Financial Services Risk Management Practice Leader and Americas Financial Services Advisory Leader. “Being recognized by Operational Risk & Regulation as a top financial services consulting organization demonstrates Ernst & Young’s commitment to stay ahead of the changes the industry faces and address the evolving needs of our clients.”

Changes within the regulatory landscape will continue to alter the operating environment for financial services institutions.  Most recently, demand for risk management and regulatory advisory services has been particularly strong as organizations begin to transform the way they manage their business.

Prybylski added, “As our clients come out of the financial crisis and look at how they will improve business processes — and, ultimately, gain a competitive advantage — we will work with them on defining and implementing business strategies that are consistent with the emerging regulatory landscape.”
