Banking & Financial Services

South Africa, despite its “emerging market” status, has a sophisticated financial services sector. The finance, real estate and businesses services sector is South Africa’s biggest, comprising 21.1% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). It has been one of the driving engines of economic growth in the country and Africa as a whole, and for this reason has many unique dynamics that warrant bespoke stakeholder management solutions for financial services.

For example, experts predict that it is a sector that is ripe for disruption, with numerous new entrants ready to enter the market, all while mobile money and fintech revolutionise the way people handle their money, assets and data. At the same time, there are ongoing socio-political conversations about ‘monopoly capital’, financial inclusion, local ownership of banks, and wealth distribution which emphasise the importance of social legitimacy and a socio-political licence to operate. In this environment, your organisation needs a partner with a proven track record in developing and deploying stakeholder management solutions in financial services.
