About Kayvaun

As a leader in Digital McKinsey and our Risk Practice, Kayvaun serves all types of financial services firms including universal banks, investment banks, securities firms, regional banks, asset managers, and financial-market-infrastructure players on a broad range of digital risk, finance, data, technology, and operations-related issues.

Kayvaun, along with his digital risk and data transformation teams, has had tremendous impact helping financial services firms realize new revenue opportunities, achieve far-reaching regulatory requirements, reducing risk, and creating efficiency. He has accomplished this through large-scale transformations that establish strategies and drive execution of initiatives to both address regulatory mandates and also surpass competitors with advanced digital risk and data capabilities. Such capabilities include automation of CCAR, operations risk, compliance (for example, BSA/AML, KYC) and credit processes, designing and implementing data governance, data use cases, and data architecture at a rapid pace with groundbreaking levels of adoption and impact.

Kayvaun convenes the world’s leading forums on digital risk and data transformation, for example, two biannual roundtables on BCBS 239 including all GSIBs and most D-SIBs. He also leads much of our preeminent knowledge efforts on these topics including annual benchmarking that spans over 100 banks globally. Kayvaun speaks regularly at industry forums, publishes, and is quoted in leading journals on these topics.
