The economic, market, and regulatory environment in financial services have fundamentally shifted the drivers of performance. A continued low rate environment and macroeconomic uncertainty strain margins. Technology and advances in data analytics are enabling new competitors to challenge traditional business models that have underpinned past success. Consumer use of digital channels to engage with financial services institutions is evolving rapidly. At the same time, increasing regulatory scrutiny and fundamental structural reform are forcing institutions to rethink how to manage financial resources in light of new capital, leverage and liquidity constraints.
At Marakon, we help financial institutions effectively navigate and respond to the new regulatory, competitive, and customer landscape in ways that maximize value creation. We help institutions re-think inorganic strategy, capital allocation, commercial and go-to-market models and organizational structures and people / talent agendas so as to continue to make fundamental progress in the new world.
Our clients include large financial services institutions across retail, commercial and wholesale banks, insurers, payments companies, and wealth and asset managers.
