Professional Services

Wales is an emerging force within the financial services sector. This expansion has in turn driven demand for associated professional services with the expert knowledge to help drive growth. Our professional services sector includes firms specialising in accountancy, actuarial, audit and tax, business intelligence, information security, risk management and compliance.

Professional services companies are attracted to Wales by the expertise offered by universities and colleges in the region as well as the highly skilled workforce.  These were key factors in the recent decision by Pageant Media to open a data gathering and research centre in Cardiff. The organisation provides information, insight and analysis to financial service companies globally. 

Deloitte has a major presence in Wales, employing 750 people. Their Global Delivery Centre for Risk and Compliance was established in Cardiff where it provides compliance support and in depth research to colleagues across the Deloitte organisation worldwide.

Creditsafe, headquartered in Caerphilly, are the world’s most used provider of company credit reports. As one of only four primary providers of business information in the UK, they provide up-to-the-minute credit data to over 90,000 customers in Europe and America. 


Deloitte has demonstrated the clear advantages of locating their research and compliance unit in Cardiff.
