As the financial services sector is just beginning to glimpse the full potential of fintech, it can be difficult for companies to understand the challenges and opportunities it presents for their business.

The Fintech Consulting Group (Fincog) was founded in 2017 by Jeroen de Bel, a former retail banking and payments senior analyst at The Boston Consulting Group and a corporate strategy team member with the Volksbank, to help companies navigate the complexities of the sector in a structured manner.

Fincog boasts an expanding, multidisciplinary and experienced team of independent consultants, covering every aspect of fintech across a wide range of sectors, to build tailored solutions to fit clients’ needs. Our freelance consultants all have a minimum of five years of relevant work experience and can deftly handle process-related tasks like strategy development, product development, and producing target operating models.
