In the golden age of high margins, growth and risk appetite the focus on a thought through business strategy has languished. Since the financial turmoil in 2008 financial services institutions find themselves in a situation where a coherent business strategy is a matter of survival. The situation is aggravated by the fact that regulators have imposed significant challenges on most professional market participants within financial services throughout the last years.
The team of alphra partners will work with you as an intermediary to enable a successful transition into the new brave world of banking. We will bring newest market insights and will be the catalyst that allows ideas to emerge, and will assist in their fine-tuning and tailoring. Further, our activities will be focused on fostering your organization.
The very basic principles and economics of banking have not changed but there has been a profound shift in the way in which clients wish to conduct their banking business.
Throughout the last years customer expectations of what is 'banking' have changed drastically. Omni-channel, AI, machine learning, Blockchain, robo advisory, sentiment based analysis are terms that have hit the market in tremendous speed. In the coming years we will see the biggest disruptions in financial services since the invention of the internet.
Banks have to re-think their business models to take advantage of the opportunities emerging in the digital era.
We at alphra partners can help you to take advantage of the opportunities of technology and therefore increasing your customer loyalty and levering your profitability.
Operations is the backbone within today's banking land-scape. At the same time it is the weak point within most financial services organi-zations. Our financial services clients are often being challenged with complex, inflexible product-centric, legacy architecture while having to compete in more and more segments with competition from innovative technology companies and start-ups offering streamlined services and having superior processing infrastructure. In a low-margin-environment this means a struggle for survival and only those can compete having operational excellence.
We help our clients to become operational stars by aligning their operating model to their business strategy and financial targets by identifying, quanti-fying and prioritizing efficiency opportunities through our in-depth operations and industry expertise.
Utilizing the power of technologies requires financial services companies to over-come complex system inte-gration and data management challenges, both within the organization’s own walls, and with its external partners, regulators, and customers. Further one of the biggest challenges today is managing the complexity by making use of the extensive data pools that are available within the company.
The integration and data management specialists of alphra partners are helping our clients to manage the complexity inherent with technology and solve business challenges through the integration of technology — as discrete services or compre-hensive solutions.
We at alphra partners can help you to make your inte-gration successful and to uncover the hidden potent-ial within your data.
Every year, companies invest billions of Swiss francs in large IT projects to enable strategic initiatives or to upgrade legacy system infrastructure, but fail to reap their promised benefits. This costly failures often root in insufficient project management capabilities and uncontrolled change manage-ment processes.
Although timeline and budget might be the most prominent and influencing factors functional items, risk balan-cing, the right delivery method and the involvement of all required stakeholders are the ones that really make the difference.
We at alphra partners have year-long experience in delivering complex projects and programs and are proactively managing both business and IT activities in concert with each other to ensure business results will equal or exceed your expectations.
