Guiding you through change

Our Banking practice is led by a dedicated team of former regulators, industry executives and senior professionals with a wealth of knowledge and practical experience.

The banking sector is currently undergoing some of the most significant changes in its history. Recent events are creating market conditions in which financial institutions will have to focus on both fundamental balance sheet management and innovative approaches to capturing funding and ensuring profitability. An already complex regulatory environment will almost certainly become more demanding of market participants.

We understand the challenges that you are facing

  • Regulatory reforms and issues;
  • Globalisation, new technologies and business model changes;
  • A post-financial crisis context: combining, restructuring, monitoring and valuation.

Since the start of the banking crisis, we have been heavily involved in helping the banking industry, central banks and governments navigate through the web of regulatory, economic and political changes currently facing your industry. Whilst we may not be able to predict what the future holds, we can ensure the decisions you need to make are robust and deliver lasting results to you and your stakeholders.
