Managing Director & Partner
Kunal Jhanji is a core member of Boston Consulting Group’s Financial Institutions practice. He leads BCG's payments work in the UK and is a member of the firm’s Transaction Banking and Payments management team. He has extensive experience working on payments topics with banks, core payments providers (schemes, acquirers, PSPs), and non-banks (regulators, merchants, fintechs).
Kunal also leads BCG's global open banking proposition. He recently defined an innovative partnership strategy, including RFP support, for a cobranded loyalty credit card partnership deal at a European bank; and was part of the BCG leadership team of a large program for a major African bank for its new digital transaction bank and payments build.
Prior to joining BCG, Kunal was a management consultant at Oliver Wyman, EY, and Deloitte. At Wyman, he was COO for the European payments practice, and he also served as head of policy for the Open Banking Implementation Entity, UK, while on secondment.
BCG’s 20th annual study of the global payments industry examines how all participants in the payments ecosystem—including acquirers, issuers, networks, wholesale transaction banks, and fintechs—can raise their game by pursuing new strategies for growth.
