Projective Group announces biggest brand move yet alongside latest new UK acquisition
Projective Group today launches a transformative rebrand designed to reflect the full depth and breadth of their expertise as an end-to-end change specialist in Europe. The move will support the group’s innovative and growth-focused approach to helping financial institutions embrace change and create lasting value through dedicated divisions in Transformation, Data, Payments, Pensions, Talent, and Risk and Compliance. Simultaneously, Projective Group realises a next step in its ongoing strategic growth plan with the acquisition of UK-based GDFM Consulting, affirming its stronghold in the European financial services sector and boosting the group’s managed services proposition.
Starting out as a boutique consultancy firm in 2006, Projective Group has established its reputation as a trusted partner for clients who are determined to excel in the ever-changing financial sector. Thanks to an impressive buy-and-build strategy, the group now encompasses over 1,100 experts across six major European financial centres, who support organisations in achieving growth that has a lasting impact on their business.

This evolution is grounded in the concept of creating increased value for clients and colleagues alike. In recent years Projective Group has brought together several highly successful, specialist businesses with the aim of becoming an end-to-end partner for all change projects in the Financial Services industry. As of today, all these businesses are united under a shared brand and identity to foster deeper collaboration and support the collective mission to create long-term value for both customers and employees, by embracing change that is powered by deep expertise.
Key highlights of this evolution include a new visual identity and messaging that tells the group’s growth story and how it will help to better serve their clients. This includes a design suite and new logo that combines meaningful elements that together reflect a more contemporary and forward-thinking image. Projective Group also unveils a new website that offers users an intuitive, informative, and engaging platform to explore the extensive services on offer and learn more about Projective Group and its journey. Through the rebrand, the group also reaffirms its commitment to sustainability by integrating environmentally responsible practices into its operations and offering sustainability consulting services to clients.

At the same time, Projective Group proudly announces its latest acquisition in the form of GDFM Consulting, a UK-based boutique management consultancy specialising in business consulting and managed services solutions across risk advisory and regulatory compliance. Founded in 2016, GDFM has established itself as a respected brand in the UK that will seamlessly complement and enhance the already substantial service offerings of Projective Group.
By leveraging GDFM’s strong managed services proposition and deep domain expertise in financial crime and non-financial risk, Projective Group will be able to support its clients even more effectively as a complete solutions provider and reinforce its stronghold in the European financial marketplace.
