Europe Uncategorized

Award winning risk management consultancy Parker Fitzgerald has been selected to appear in a new digital publication entitled Cambridge Strategies, which showcases top employers and digital innovators from around the world, and provides insights into today’s ever-changing professional and academic landscapes.

Published by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) and its official publisher, St James’s House, Cambridge Strategies includes an eBook, website, app and marketing campaign aimed at high-calibre students.

“Cambridge Strategies is a groundbreaking global campaign that delivers thought-provoking content in an interactive and user-friendly format,” says Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House. “The website not only identifies leaders in education and an extensive range of professional opportunities, but also provides a digital platform for discussing some of the most pressing issues within education and employment – such as the increasing need for digital skills.”

The inclusion of Parker Fitzgerald provides the project with invaluable insight.

‘The digitisation of financial services is a profound transformation – and that includes the risk function.  Digital banking offers efficient operations and an attractive customer experience but it also needs to be safe and resilient to a rapidly changing landscape of threats’ says David Northen, a Partner at Parker Fitzgerald.  ‘Our team are industry leaders in building risk functions for this new generation of banks, and these will look very different from what exists today’.

A truly international project, Cambridge Strategies will engage with an informed and influential audience of global talent, including the University of Cambridge’s 22,000 students, members of the Cambridge Alumni Association, more than 50,000 educational institutions from over 190 countries and the senior management of companies on all the major global indices.

“It’s a real privilege to work with CUSU and profiled organisations such as Parker Fitzgerald,” says Richard Freed. “Parker Fitzgerald has a great deal to offer, and we are very pleased to announce their input in this unique digital publication.”
