FMS Newsletter
  We are delighted to present the inaugural edition of our Consulting Newsletter. The consulting sector has been undergoing a transformation, and recent global events have aggravated the headwinds. In an environment of high inflation and expectations of recession in most global economies, consulting firms and their clients have started to take steps to shield themselves from the challenges likely to emerge. Articles in this newsletter touch on consulting trends and emerging themes, and provide a glimpse of our suite of consulting services. Happy reading!
