Manish Nayar Joins Guidehouse’s Financial Services Advisory and Compliance Segment

Guidehouse is pleased to welcome Manish Nayar to its Financial Services Advisory and Compliance (FSAC) business segment as a director in the segment’s Banking, Insurance, and Capital Markets (BICM) practice. 

Manish comes to Guidehouse with 14+ years of Big 4 consulting experience driving large-scale transformation initiatives across buy and sell side financial services organizations. He has advised clients on risk and regulatory change management, front-to-back technology modernization and process efficiencies and strategic cost management. At Guidehouse, he will help to cultivate and drive our investment management offerings in operational efficiency, transformational strategy, and implementation of new regulatory and governance structures. He will focus his efforts across the investment ecosystem including traditional fund managers, diversified financial services companies, servicers and insurance investment functions. Manish joins the firm from KPMG and will be based in Guidehouse’s Washington D.C. Office.

“We welcome Manish to our growing team of talented professionals who possess a wealth of experience and industry knowledge,” said Ellen Zimiles, managing director and leader of the FSAC segment. “His unique qualifications and capabilities enhance our ability to provide relevant solutions to our global clientele and address the challenges they face as businesses rapidly change to meet technological advances.”

“Our investment management clients are under mounting pressure to transform to better compete while managing costs and compliance requirements – but adoption is often daunting and remains slow. Investment management firms that do not commit to change are missing opportunities and will likely find themselves playing catch up or worse, falling behind”, said Christopher Sicuranza, managing director and leader of the BICM practice. “As the industry continues to grapple with these challenges and seek third party expertise to assist them in developing their customer-centric digital capabilities, we are committed to attracting the best professionals who understand their needs. We are delighted that Manish has joined our team and believe our growing client base will benefit greatly from his deep industry expertise.”  

Guidehouse’s FSAC segment collaborates with banking, insurance, and investment management firms to enhance and streamline compliance, manage risk, safeguard reputations, and create competitive advantage.
