We are delighted to have welcomed Maximilian Turunen, Principal, to the team. He joins us to support our financial services clients with their major regulatory change challenges.

Organisations from insurers to investment banks face the twin problem of grappling with the complexities of Brexit planning and the ensuing implementation, and yet still working through issues raised by regulations such as MiFID II, PRIIPs and GDPR. Maximilian’s ten years’ experience working in the consulting and financial services industries, including leading implementation of MiFID II for a global investment bank, make him a valuable asset to the growing number of Gate One’s financial services clients facing these challenges.

Maximilian has spent the last two years at UBS where he played key roles in their Investor Protection and Regulatory Programmes. He was one of the bank’s regulatory experts responsible for interpreting regulation and acted as an industry association liaison for the British Bankers’ Association (now UK Finance) and AFME.

Previous to UBS, Maximilian worked at PwC where he led the Volcker Rule proposition in the UK. He helped various global banking clients assess the Rule’s impacts, determine appropriate trading strategies and implement the chosen solutions across trading desks. He has held various training roles in the areas of capital markets and regulation. He started his career at EY.

“With so much political, economic and regulatory turmoil in the market, it’s an exciting time to be joining Gate One’s expanding financial services team,” says Maximilian.

“Efficient and smart implementation of regulatory requirements in the sector is integral to building and retaining a competitive advantage. Preparations for Brexit and managing its implementation are taking up more and more of business leaders’ energy and attention, all at a time when the regulators’ attentions are further focusing on conflicts management, governance and financial crime. I’m very much looking forward to adding value to Gate One’s financial services clients.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Maximilian to the business,” says Alex McEvoy, Partner and Financial Services Lead. “Our FS team is helping guide its financial services clients through many of the challenges keeping its leadership awake at night, in particular those relating to Brexit and regulation. Maximilan’s extensive experience complements our existing capabilities in digital operating model innovation, people change and core transformational consulting.”
