Delivering high-performing workplace solutions across Europe for the financial sector

The pivot from place to purpose – and back again!

Not only have we seen many European firms change their style of operation in 2021 to adapt to post-pandemic working, how firms will adjust and ensure business continuity post-Brexit also presents huge possibility.

We’re seeing many of our clients within the financial sector extend their reach across Europe, recognising the demand to operate at a global scale. Although there has been some uncertainty on how the financial sector would react following Brexit, Barclays Chief Executive Jes Staley told the BBC ‘Brexit gives one of the UK's most important sectors the chance to define its own agenda’ prompting optimism throughout this 'critical' industry.

We provide a dedicated service for our clients to support their international workplace requirements, developing a transferable design and delivery language as part of their wider growth strategy.

Check out our latest projects for some of Europe’s biggest and best financial institutions.
