  • About Us
  • Leadership
  • Partners

Since forming Risk Focus in 2004 we have prided ourselves on setting the bar for delivery! Our no-nonsense approach to exceeding our client’s expectations sets us apart from ‘consulting firms’ whose focus is often on client colonization not satisfaction.

We hire intellectually curious technologists who prefer to avoid the politics of large financial services organizations but are motivated by the diversity and scale of the challenge they present. We’re a team of problem solvers who have grown organically from a niche staff augmentation firm to a specialist solutions provider.
