During his career, Gourp has advised financial services institutions – mainly banks and insurers – and private equity groups across the Middle East and Europe on topics including strategy design, operational excellence, digitalisation and large-scale programme implementation. He has also driven numerous engagements for sovereign wealth funds, family offices and corporations at the intersection of financial services.
