An award-winning figure in the world's wealth management industry is now chairman of F2 Strategy, the consultancy.
Seb Dovey, a prominent strategy and opinion-former in the wealth management industry – whose efforts have been honored by the publisher of this website – has been appointed as chairman of F2 Strategy’s board.
F2 Strategy is a management consultancy, which has contributed a number of commentaries to these pages. (See here and here.)
Dovey co-founded Scorpio Partnership in 1998 as a global consultancy, strategic research and data business, focusing on areas such as wealth management at a time when the sector was still relatively low-profile in the media and financial industry. He is a regular speaker and writer about industry issues (see here, for example). In 2018 he won the award from WealthBriefing, sister news service to this one, for outstanding contribution to wealth management thought leadership (individual category). His business, Scorpio, was sold in 2014 to McLagan, a business owned by AON. Dovey is also a member of Family Wealth Report's editorial board.
At a time when the global sector continues to wrestle with shifting client demands, intergenerational wealth transfer, and digital tech, there is a need for such expertise.
“The strategic opportunity of F2 is an exciting one. F2 has a unique depth of specialist experience focused on rapid, agile technology implementations. This meets a specific need for wealth managers that are keen to sustainably accelerate their financial growth. F2’s strategic plans have positive momentum and are poised for expansion,” said Dovey.
“Growth is exciting for us because it comes with opportunity along with a new set of challenges. We help our clients see how bringing in experienced and tenured support is additive to their business. In this way, Seb is to F2 Strategy as we are to our clients. He is consultative, open, exceptionally well-connected and the person we’ve admired for a very long time. It’s an honor to have Seb’s guidance, perspective and faith during this exciting time for our business,” Doug Fritz, founder and CEO of F2 Strategy, said.
In his chairmanship role, Dovey will enable the executive leadership of F2 Strategy to implement the strategic growth plan, F2 Strategy said.
