Developing a smarter, simplified organisation is a driving force among most investment banks. There has been widespread exiting of businesses; a sharpened interest in cost and return; a new desire to rationalise the architecture, and ambitions to succeed in new markets.
In every industry shift, the bank’s ability to leverage data and to understand end-to-end trading flows across the organisation is critical. Instead of earning a return on data, for most organisations it is an overhead. Instead of risk data being an enabler for the front office, it is pulling the market back. This applies to margin pricing, XVA and client opportunities. Instead of having a single source of accurate trade data, approximate and duplicate bookings make a consolidated view hard to achieve.
We help investment banks align their portfolios to both mandatory and discretionary demands and to deliver against some of the most critical areas of their business.
We combine industry expertise and disciplined execution skills to our initiatives. Our consultants blend strategic ambition with practical solutions to arrive at the best outcome, whether for MiFID II programmes, post-merger integration, re-platforming or finance and risk optimisation.
