Banking Operations, efficient and fit-for-purpose

Optimizing banking operations is about the delivery of timely and accurate information and services in the form of correctly executed transactions by a bank in its daily dealings with its clients. The role this function plays, known in the industry as the “back” or “middle” office, and the effect it has on the everyday operations of the banking, sales, trading, and asset management capabilities of an organization should not be underestimated because a failure to optimize operations can negatively impact profit margins.

 

Profound knowledge and background in financial services operations

Irrespective of organizational size and focus, an efficient and fit-for-purpose operation minimizes both risks and costs while simultaneously optimizing the delivery of high-quality services and industry-standard deliverables.

Our areas of expertise

Work we have done

With our profound knowledge and background in operations, our well-educated, professional consultants have years of knowledge and experience to draw on when analyzing and implementing solutions. The subtopics outlined below depict only a handful of the areas within the banking sector that we routinely improve for clients:

 

  • Operations management support and design
  • Trade execution, settlement, confirmation, and support
  • Global transactions, payments, and clearing services
  • Regulatory reporting
  • Compliance and risk management
  • Financial analytics
  • Data science and engineering

 

Having spent years successfully implementing value-added programs on time and within budget, we have rightly earned a reputation as seasoned practitioners who are adept at navigating the minefield that is often encountered when dealing with legacy systems. While proud of our thought-leadership status, we never lose sight of the commercial imperatives that our clients face and, therefore, we always work within the constraints that invariably present themselves in pressured, high-volume environments.

 

To that end, we are mindful of the need to minimize any disruption of day-to-day operations while delivering the maximum possible benefit to our financial services clients.

Our ability to design and implement industry-leading solutions is second to none, given our knowledge of how to transform the most complex of situations into practicable, user-friendly solutions that are applauded by internal staff and external clients alike. Outlined below are a few examples of the projects that we undertake on behalf of clients within the financial services industry:

 

  • Design and implementation of an architectural blueprint, including business, operating, and functional models
  • Front-to-back process optimization for different asset classes
  • Performance improvement program
  • Implementation of new regulatory requirements
  • Implementation of operations capacity planning and controlling, including forecasting
  • Implementation of risk mitigation processes

 

Our consultative approach delivers outstanding value, be it technical or cost related, keeping in mind that our work has a direct impact on both the fiduciary standing and reputations of our clients’ organizations.

 

We offer clients an unrivaled skill set, forensic analysis, and extensive industry expertise. If you believe your institution’s operations could expose you to financial risk, or to a drop in service standards and/or profitability, you should call us immediately to find out how we can help your business.
