Capco to expand capital markets focus with new partner hire

Capco, the global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, today announced the appointment of Ian Bentinck as partner.

Based in London, Bentinck brings over 20 years of financial services experience in consulting and software development, with significant expertise in capital markets. His areas of specialisation include electronic trading, exchange-traded and OTC derivatives and risk management in investment banks.

His focus is on extending the recent ongoing growth of the firm’s capital markets practice which has a strong heritage and continues to expand. Bentinck will support clients in challenging today’s outdated business models and guide them through the ever-changing regulatory landscape.

“Important changes are afoot as banks work out how to effectively manage risk and financial controls from front- to back-office in the new regulatory environment. Financial services organisations have an unenviable challenge: how to respond to a multitude of demanding regulatory timelines in a strategic but cost-effective way. We are helping several banks to solve these problems,” said Bentinck. “I’m excited to get back to the heart of the industry and work on these critical change programmes.”

Bentinck has proven experience in shaping large, strategic and complex deals. Most recently he served as European head of Financial Markets at IBM. He is already familiar with Capco having previously worked as head of Consulting Services at City Practitioners, a firm acquired by Capco in 2007.

“Ian is a real asset to the Capco team,” said Stephen Vinnicombe, UK CEO at Capco. “His track record demonstrates his ability to deliver successful transformation programmes and strategic advisory work. We’re confident his deep domain knowledge will help us to continue to grow our business and we’re very excited to have him back on board.”
