James has extensive experience managing global client relationships and transformation programs across the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Africa, and a successful track-record in applying an entrepreneurial approach to developing fast-growth businesses. His deep expertise around emerging technologies and data-led transformation within capital markets and banking will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business and presence in the region.”

James Arnett said: “I’m very pleased to have this opportunity to take our APAC business forward. The region continues to be a centre for innovation and dynamism when it comes to digitalization and transformation within financial services. There are significant opportunities at hand around virtual banking, data, insurtech, emergent technologies including cloud and machine learning, and the enhancement of user experiences and customer journeys. I look forward to working with our Asia Pacific clients to help them reengineer and grow their businesses.”
