Matt Fitzpatrick

Senior Partner, New York
Leads McKinsey’s Financial Services digital and technology solutions


With a passion for technology, Matt leads McKinsey’s Financial Services digital and technology solutions—a suite of seven solutions, 75 assets, and more than 500 colleagues globally.

These seven solutions—FinLab, GCI Analytics, Finalta, PriceMetrix, Performance Lens, ACE, and Panorama—enable business transformation with data, analytics, and software tools across banking, wealth and asset management, real estate, and private equity. Matt is also the founder FinLab—a team of data scientists, systems architects, and engineers spread across New York, Silicon Valley, Boston, Atlanta, and London—that builds at-scale data and software applications for financial institutions.

Matt’s expertise extends to strategy and corporate finance, where he has led McKinsey’s work in this space in the Northeast offices of the United States.

Prior to rejoining McKinsey, Matt cofounded a multicategory ecommerce retailer and worked as private-equity investor. Drawing on his extensive experience in software and technology, he now helps corporate and investment banks, asset managers, wealth managers, real-estate companies, and private-equity firms build custom data and software applications to transform operations and drive near-term value. These applications have included issues such as multichannel customer acquisition, customer retention, credit underwriting, credit collections, natural language processing of contract data, real-estate location selection, fraud, smart operations and robotic-process automation, and people analytics.

Examples of Matt’s recent client work include the following:

  • helping a real estate client build out the offering and full tech stack of a new consumer-facing digital business
  • helping a large financial institution automate and digitally enable corporate credit underwriting
  • building a data warehouse and micro-services architecture to power a variety of marketing and acquisition use cases
  • advising a financial institution on how to optimize its real estate footprint
  • developing a retention analytics tool for a large portfolio company of a private-equity firm

Outside of work, Matt serves on the board of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and on the event committee of the Concert Artists Guild in New York City. He is an avid reader of fiction, pickup-basketball player, traveler, and committed fan of the New York Knicks and Jets.
