As neo banks and fintechs begin to grasp their full potential, we are here to lead in market research, cultivate strategic insights, and guide implementation so our clients can capitalize on the promise of today’s financial innovations.

The Fintech Consulting Group, or Fincog, was established in 2017 by Jeroen de Bel in Amsterdam to help challengers and incumbents take advantage of fintech in a structured and profitable manner.

Our team of consultants help those in financial services navigate today’s fintech by moving from assessment to strategy, and then, on to implementation and profitability. We proudly work with a global network of senior industry experts and international partners who span all aspects of the financial sector.

“We had a long list of initiatives and everything seemed important and urgent. Fincog helped us to create structure and prioritise the projects that would have the largest impact for our stakeholders”

Projectmanager at a central bank

“We wanted to move from top-down forecasts to bottom-up plans, with commercial targets supported by the business. Fincog helped us develop an advanced yet easy-to-understand forecasting model that we could update ourselves periodically. They also gave us specific metrics for our business to achieve our financial goals”

Finance manager at an asset management firm

“We wanted to obtain an overview of the latest trends in fintech and see what opportunities they could hold for us. After the workshops, we felt we could finally understand what all the buzzwords really meant, how fintech trends impacted us and what opportunities they could bring”

Director at a large universal bank

“We wanted to better understand PSD2 and open banking to explore potential opportunities. During a series of workshops, Fincog helped us to really understand the topic. With a broad set of examples from all around the world, Fincog was also able to show what solutions could look like and helped us think outside the box”
