We deem that, in a market such as the financial industry, the ability to provide integrated and tailor-made assistance, combining multidisciplinary skills and continuous updating on knowledge aspects, is essential, including a constant contact with the main financial centres in the world, also thanks to dialogue and comparison with leading independent foreign firms that are an integral part of our network of relations.

In addition, the combination of finance and technology currently requires flexibility and velocity, to pre-empt the needs of an extremely dynamic market, in terms of product and business model innovation and in terms of the strategies underlying the definition of new services and platforms. The rise of FinTech has certainly created opportunities for financial operators through the use of advanced technologies and partnerships with new market players, leading to innovative solutions such as peer-to-peer payment technologies and blockchain-based solutions, the use of artificial intelligence, cognitive computing and big data, PFM (Personal Financial Management) and evolutions in the area of wealth management, credit, InsurTech, RegTech, open banking, digital payment, P2P lending, alternative financing, crowdfunding and security, drawing new scenarios and dynamics at an accelerated pace, for which our team is perfectly equipped to support clients to seize the maximum potential and opportunities.
