Back to How We Help Clients

Corporate & Investment Banking

We help investment banking clients meet a wide range of strategic, organizational, and operational demands.

The corporate and investment banking industry is in a period of uncertainty and transition, with banks still searching for sustainable models in the context of intense regulatory activity and capital challenges. Our practice has a proven record of innovation and impact working with capital markets and investment banking institutions to define strategies and priorities for a new banking era.

We work with a diverse set of banking and nonbanking institutions, including universal banks, securities firms, national banks, exchanges, and information providers. Our work encompasses overall strategies for the wholesale business and for specific products, client segments and geographies; organizational issues; performance improvement; and mergers and alliances. We also undertake work on client issues in information technology, risk management, branding and customer relationship management.

Two routes to digital success in capital markets

– There are two routes to digital success in capital markets. The first, the all-in approach, makes sense for only a handful of banks with a strong propensity for electronic trading and a track record of technology delivery. The second route is targeted, with digital investments limited and tightly focused on protecting client franchises and reducing operating costs. Both approaches will deliver significant savings.
