Today, we’re hugely excited to announce OSTC’s coming together with fellow industry-leading financial training and education specialists, BG Consulting.

Our organisations already share some of the world’s most respected capabilities in our sector. This venture now combines BG Consulting’s educational expertise with our pioneering ZISHI EdTech platform, both broadening our horizons with a more extensive range of products and services and accelerating our vast global deployment even further.

With associates across North America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, BG Consulting’s courses are designed to fit a range of training needs and learning styles. The collaboration significantly expands our activities in a large and growing addressable market.

Speaking about the acquisition, Lee Hodgkinson, CEO, said: “Acquiring BG Consulting advances our growth and revenue diversification strategy, and adds scale and further momentum to our financial training and education business. BG Consulting is a rapidly growing and profitable education company renowned for its excellence. We are delighted to welcome Claire Anderson and her talented BG Consulting team to the OSTC family as we join forces to advance our leadership in powering early careers learning for aspirational young people around the world.”

In response, Claire Anderson, Managing Director of BG Consulting commented: “This is an exciting next step in the growth of BG Consulting and our market-leading offering. OSTC’s commitment to delivering a best in class training experience aligned closely with our own focus on the quality and accessibility of our courses, making this move a natural one for BG Consulting. We remain committed to providing our existing clients with the high level of service they have come to expect and look forward to expanding our offering as part of OSTC’s stable.”
