The Payments industry may have many players, from card issuers and networks to payment processors, merchant acquirers, and fintech start-ups, but they all have one thing in common: a compelling need for a dynamic strategy that can help them win in this rapidly evolving sector.
We bring deep experience to bear across the entire Payments industry, to help you thrive amid increased competition, more stringent regulatory requirements, and the profound impact of contactless, cross-border, online and real-time P2P payments.
We have worked with companies around the world on the full spectrum of current imperatives, from integrated payments to customer loyalty to the adoption of digital wallets, and much more. We have also played a key role in the vast majority of private equity deals in cards and payments, assisting on transactions totalling more than $100 billion in investment value.
We work with leading players in the wealth & asset management and private banking sectors to enable their transformation so they can keep ahead of the profound structural changes affecting the industry. We support the delivery of the highest levels of service and performance to their affluent, high- and ultra-high net worth clients, as well as Family Offices and institutional clients. Our broad expertise—which spans strategy, digital transformation, operations, M&A, private equity due diligence and much more—helps companies respond nimbly and effectively to the many structural forces currently reshaping the Wealth & Asset Management landscape, including:
- Quality of the offering. Providing quality offerings to, and having high-quality interactions with, clients is and will remain the most important differentiator for wealth managers. This includes the right products and services provided at the right time, leveraging the full array of bank-wide capabilities to deliver tailored advice, rigorous direction of processes towards a seamless client journey, and a client-centric infrastructure that supports the best client experience across channels.
- Digitalization: Over the last decade digitalization has ushered in new opportunities to better understand and address client needs, as well as to break up value chains and create new ecosystems. This has had a catalytic effect on this increasingly dynamic sector, but to date these new capabilities have been seized on pre-dominantly by players outside traditional sector boundaries.
- Value orientation: Intensification of various global megatrends, in combination with increased societal dialogues (e.g., around climate protection, energy transition, and related issues), has led to changing norms. Demand for sustainable investing has jumped, accelerated by the global pandemic, which has made people even more conscious of mankind’s vulnerability.
We have helped wealth and asset management firms expand into new markets, transform their technology infrastructures, reduce costs, devise new business and operating models, seize new sourcing opportunities, and develop the right strategies to win, today and in the future. Our highly collaborative approach enables us to work side-by-side with you at every step, from initial assessment to implementation. And, we make sure your teams develop the skills they need to support continuous innovation and improvement.
