Deloitte has appointed Guy Stevens to its Financial Institutions group as he seeks to build on the strong momentum of the past year. The new partner brings more than two decades of expertise to the role, having held similar roles with some of the world’s largest investment banks.

Commenting on his new role, Guy Stevens said: “I am delighted to join an impressive team at the Financial Institutions Group (FIG) who are quickly building a reputation for providing clients with deeply analytical advice. Deloitte is well positioned to provide strategic solutions during a test period for the industry. I plan to work closely with my colleagues as we seek to expand our customer relationships across the EMEA region. “

Stevens joins Deloitte as a partner in the Corporate Finance Advisory activity of Big Four. As a member of the FIG team, he will focus on improving relationships with a number of Deloitte’s most important banking and insurance clients in the EMEA region.

To fulfill this role, Stevens will be able to draw on more than 20 years of experience in the investment banking industry, most recently at UBS. During his tenure at the financial institution, he was Managing Director and responsible for UBS’s FIG activities for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as large-cap banks in the Kingdom. United and Western Europe. Previously, he also held senior positions in FIG at Citigroup and Rothschild & Co.

Deloitte built its FIG team under the leadership of Jonathan Gold, Head of FIG Corporate Finance Advisory. According to him, the team now aims to continue investing in the company during the year and seeks to provide top-notch service to its clients in mergers and acquisitions, credit portfolio solutions and balance sheet advice.

Gold, who is also a partner of Deloitte, added: “I look forward to working with Guy to leverage our strong momentum in the financial services industry… Guy’s deep industry expertise and deal making will be invaluable as we provide tailor-made and innovative solutions. new and existing financial services customers.

The move comes at a time when large asset managers and banks in Europe are facing increased pressure to consolidate. For example, as the coronavirus pandemic sparks renewed interest in banking consolidation across Europe, it was reported late last year that a mega-merger could see UBS and Credit Suisse merge in a way that would allow both to thrive in a future economic recovery.
