Krarup launched Axxsys Consulting's third international office in April this year, and has since been busy with setting up the company, building a brand and recruiting the first clients – with success; according to Krarup “the new hires are in response to increased demand.” 

Krarup added; “Caspar, Henrik and Peter are great additions to our Nordic team. They all bring deep local business know-how, system expertise, strong analytical skills, and a solid track record of high quality delivery.” 

Established in 2003, Axxsys Consulting focuses exclusively on clients in the financial services industry, with a focus on asset managers and wealth managers. The consultancy has offices in London (headquarters), Toronto and New York.
