As a partner in Banking Capital Markets in Frankfurt I am focused on supporting leading banking clients to enhance profitability by improving their product portfolio, optimizing their operating models to achieve efficiency and creating regulatory compliance. I have been advising major banking clients in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the US for more than 20 years, including recently seven years on Wall Street in New York with a focus on Investment Banking clients and new technologies.

My main focus topics currently are:

  • Digital Business Strategy Definition
  • Business Impact of New Technologies (Event Streaming/Kafka, Blockchain)
  • Designing and Building New Digital Business and Operating Models
  • State-of-the-art Securities Products and Processes (front to back)
  • State-of-the-art Regulatory Compliance & Change Agenda
  • Brexit Readiness (Frankfurt, Paris, Dublin)

As an author of various studies and articles, I currently focus in particular on the way new technologies can help create the new leading bank and revolutionize the way the banking business will be conducted in the 21st century.

What I enjoy about consulting is critical thinking and the open exchange of ideas between people with different backgrounds. I am convinced that challenging our viewpoints constantly and coming up with unique and innovative answers and solutions is the key to providing sustained value-add to our clients.

Key questions for me are:

  • How will new technologies re-shape the banking industry and the roles of banking players?
  • How will profitable banks look like in the future?
  • What are new business and operating models driven by new technologies?
  • Is data the new real currency? If yes, what does that mean?
  • Will industry sectors be converging because of data integration?
  • What effect will the new bank paradigm have on transformation planning and change budgets?
  • What effect will the new bank paradigm have on regulatory compliance management?
