Times are tough for corporate and investment banks.  Shrinking revenues, increasing competition and intense regulatory scrutiny have made it imperative for CIBs to rethink business strategies and operating models. 


We help our clients navigate this change and come out ahead. 


Developing new revenue streams

The lack of confidence from clients and recent regulatory mandates and initiatives have created seismic challenges for banks as they look to maintain profitability and ideally growth.

We work closely with our clients to define new revenue streams. Expansion into new areas will ensure stability, while this evolutionary transformation becomes more a mandate of survival than a mandate of growth.


We deliver tangible results in the following areas:


  • Launch of new activities or products
  • Products and service restructuring
  • New or existing markets expansion
  • Definition of new pricing strategies
  • Definition of new channel strategies
  • Sales and marketing effectiveness optimization
  • Data and analytics for customer profitability optimization

Defining the best strategies for capital, funding and liquidity management

With the shift in banks’ business models from revenues to resource management, there’s a need for leaner balance sheet management.
