Regional Development Institutions and Multilateral Financing
We work with a diverse set of banking and non-banking institutions, including universal banks, securities firms, national banks, exchanges, and information providers. Our work encompasses overall strategies for the wholesale business and for specific products, client segments and geographies; organizational issues; performance improvement; and mergers and alliances. We also undertake work on client issues in information technology, risk management, branding and customer relationship management.
We help a broad range of banking and consumer finance firms navigate a dynamically changing environment, in which regulatory constraints, consumer deleveraging and evolving channel dynamics present significant obstacles to profitability. Portfolio projects are customized, with scale and timing driven by client need. Our services range from rapid assessments of portfolio company business functions to comprehensive turnaround of performance, redesigning processes, operations, and products from the ground up.
Our approach to supporting clients is customized and collaborative, and combines deep industry expertise and experience with proprietary quantitative analytics and research. We help banks build the capabilities they need to succeed in the long term.
