Accenture recently has announced that it has entered an agreement to acquire Exton Consulting, a French consulting firm that primarily provides strategy and business management support to financial services clients across Europe. Also, Exton Consulting helps executive boards successfully manage growth and transformation projects in various markets across Europe.
It is reported that Exton's team of 150 members who are highly skilled professionals would join Accenture's Financial Services industry group and strengthen its ability to deliver innovative end-to-end solutions to a broader range of financial services companies that covers all aspects of their transformation projects, including strategy, design, technology, and operations.
Exton Consulting and Accenture will work to serve the financial services industry, which is facing unprecedented transformation driven by economic and geopolitical uncertainties. This acquisition would cement Accenture's standing as a leading strategy and consulting firm for its financial services clients in France and other countries, taking innovative end-to-end solutions to new levels of speed and scale. The combination of innovation, technology, and data skills will offer highly differentiated, end-to-end services to an even broader client base for both companies.
