OUR VALUES

 

Entrepreneurship

Promoting a strong entrepreneurial spirit, we encourage movement, ambition, boldness and creativity. We believe those notions inspire everyone to stay unsatisfied with status-quos and therefore to constantly push the boundaries imposed by habits and circumstances while strongly focusing on our customers and employees’ best interest.

 

PRAGMATISM

Formulating pragmatic recommendations based on our consultants' experience and refusing any standardization of our efforts, we constantly adapt our approach and methodologies to our clients' environment and needs.

INTEGRITY

We base our relationships on transparency and honesty, always with our clients and employees’ best interest in mind. Therefore, our recommendations are developed independently and objectively.

Humility

By adopting a resolutely different positioning from large firms, we fully involve our clients in the projects they entrust to us and question ourselves constantly in order to maintain a spirit of openness and innovation.

OUR HISTORY

Founded in 2009, Initio is a business consultancy firm specialised in the Financial Industry. Initio’s core business is projects for the Banking & Insurance industry. In parallel our teams in Digital Transformation, Digital Marketing, Customer Intelligence, and Data Mining are growing fast spreading in major projects over Paris, Brussels and Luxemburg.

A major milestone in the evolution of Initio was reached on Oct 1st 2013 with the announcement of the acquisition of 70% of the shares of Initio group by the French group Square, which represents a network of consulting firms in strategy, organization and operational consultancy based in Paris.

In 2016, Initio opens a new office in Geneva and further expands the international presence of the group. To support this rapid expansion across Europe, Initio is constantly recruiting future colleagues with experience in the Financial Services industry.
