Too important to fail

Banks are currently dealing with tighter regulations.

They are also changing their marketing and sales strategies, partly to retain customers but mainly to re-establish shaken consumer confidence.

At the same time, challenges for banks in customer and channel management are looming large. Mobile payments and the potential impact of social networking on banking practices pose major challenges to established business models.


We have a strong network of banking specialists, including twenty of our partners and four hundred of our consultants. Our capabilities span the world of banking, from new payment methods to financial regulations, from marketing to large-scale mergers and acquisitions.

We are currently working on new technologies to help our banking clients improve their offering and services and also reduce their costs.

As a nimble and cooperative partner, we are known for planning and supporting business transformation in core operations, finance, risk and IT. We always act quickly and efficiently to identify, outline and execute initiatives or change programs for our banking clients and their customers.
