The Insights Review is a time-saving resource for executives and consultants wishing to stay abreast of the latest insights across the world of financial services.

A message from the editor

The period before the Northern Hemisphere holidays is often a little thin, as the consulting firms realize that publishing just before the holidays is not as good an idea as when people come back to work. This month fits the bill, with the ICG team having to work much harder to find the diamonds in the rough. The shiniest of the rough diamonds was found by ICG expert Mark Waterman, the CEO of ICG Careers (Mark can be contacted for further details via [email protected]).

Congratulations to the team at McKinsey.
