London and Paris, July 15, 2020 – Capgemini today announced that it has been selected as the strategic technology partner for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Under the five-year new agreement, Capgemini will work with FSCS to drive innovation through the adoption of digital, cloud and application technologies, a key part of its 2020 strategy.

I am absolutely delighted that we will be working with Capgemini as our strategic technology partner who I know will help us rise to the challenges ahead.”

Andrew Diaper, Vice President, Banking at Capgemini said, “We are thrilled to be chosen as the strategic technology partner for FSCS to deliver the organization’s digital transformation strategy. This strengthens our existing relationship with the FSCS and I am confident we will be able to introduce innovative ways of working to deliver and support the new business strategy.
