We help sharpen your focus

AlgoMe Consulting is a new breed of consulting firm which focuses on enabling Asset and Wealth Management businesses to successfully respond and adapt to change.

Our story

In life it is possible to identify moments when you are about to turn a new page of the book you are writing. For us it was in July 2017, we were all at a career crossroads, independently deciding to set up our own companies. The proposition of a larger pool of people, ideas and views; a combined 60-years of industry of high calibre consulting experience; an ability to look at issues through more than one lens; a strong platform for teamwork was exciting to say the least. We saw the multiple benefits in offering bespoke work in a collaborative relationship with our clients, co-designing solutions with them, and accompanying them through their transformation. AlgoMe Consulting was born out of this concept and very soon we had a business.

Today our clients tell us they work with us because we are credible, laser-focused, understand their issues, and ‘walk our talk’. We have also been complimented on our independence, transparency and our desire to remove undue complexity.

We look forward to writing the next phase of our story and hope you will join us in these new chapters.

We are committed to success and work only on opportunities where there is a strong alignment between our capabilities and the problem statement.

Who we are

We are an international team of Asset and Wealth Management industry professionals based in London and working in the UK and across Europe. We bring the benefits of our experience and insight to our everyday work, applying it to the numerous challenges our clients face.
