With the financial services sector having experienced a lot of consolidation recently, Private Equity Wire sat down with Hugh Elwes (pictured), managing director of Stephens Europe, to talk about financial services M&A and why the sector is so busy at the moment.  

Amid other factors, asset managers have commented that their businesses have evolved more in six weeks during the pandemic than they did in the prior ten years, while tech giants like Twitter have said their staff can continue working remotely from now on. In this conversation Elwes gives his views on what the shifts during the past 12 months have meant for asset managers, and whether full time remote working might become the norm for the investment industry post-pandemic as well.
