Financial Services Transformation in the Asia Pacific Region

Although the financial services sector is seeing a dramatic global shift to a fintech-based model, this situation is particularly pronounced in the Asia Pacific region, where only around one quarter of the population uses traditional banking and financial services. Accordingly, the rise of phenomena such as mobile banking services, online insurance sales and microlending represents not so much a market shift as the emergence of an entirely new market.  This new market is very large – potentially consisting of over 400 million new customers.

Владимир Коломоец об управлении бизнесом и грамотном подборе высшего менеджмента, Leadership Journey - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Киев, Украина – Вы часто встречали компании с полным набором топов — с коммерческим, финансовым и исполнительным директором? Чтобы на каждый поток по бизнес-лидеру. Собственнику остается только лишь отслеживать, как меняется прибыль его компании, цвет напитка в бокале и высота океанской волны за окном.

Но, в большинстве случаев, все это лишь верхушка айсберга, а в его основании ничего не меняется. Владелец приглашает высший менеджмент, как экспертов по управлению, но, на самом деле, всеми, даже самыми незначительными движениями компании, управляет он сам. Лично.

Почему так происходит и к чему это приводит Leadership Journey узнал у Владимира Коломойца, руководителя украинского офиса компании Pedersen&Partners.
