Strengthening every link in the financial markets value chain
We work with companies and regulators across the financial markets ecosystem including stock exchanges and other trading platforms, interdealer brokers, clearinghouses, securities depositories, information providers, data and analytics companies, index providers, technology vendors and financial investors.
Our focus is on helping market infrastructure operators, software and tech providers, market participants and financial investors proactively lead market development in this dynamic sector. We can help you address the most pressing issues and promising developments, including:
In addition to these trends, the advent of digital assets; centralization and integration of services; the increasing use of AI, automation and other technologies; and the potential for innovative new players to disrupt virtually any segment within the financial markets infrastructure (FMI) value chain means that leaders face a daunting array of challenges--and opportunities. Our global team of partners, experts and advisors works closely with you to assess all these trends, using a “future-back” approach to determine where you need to be several years from now. We combine that with a “today-forward” approach that helps you realize immediate gains as you build toward your ideal future state.
We also have extensive experience in conducting FMI due diligence on behalf of private equity firms, leveraging the deep capabilities we have developed as the leading consulting partner to the private equity industry and its key stakeholders.

Pinstriped bankers of yesteryear would be hard pressed to recognize their once-staid industry. Fierce competition, technological disruption, and continually shifting local and global regulations are just some of the challenges that banks, insurance companies and other financial services firms have to contend with. We bring decades of experience to bear, helping you identify and mitigate risks so that you can focus on the actions that enhance your competitive advantage. Across six critical focus areas we help you address: Finance and risk strategy: Develop and implement finance and risk strategies that complement your business strategy and support your competitive advantages; align your leadership and communicate your strategy to key stakeholders. Portfolio and performance management: Improve bottom-line performance by detecting high-risk and nonperforming counterparties; develop models for effective credit management; and monitor nonperforming loans. Methods and standards: Create value through superior risk and financial management that meets market and regulatory standards. Governance and operations: Develop and implement effective, efficient and compliant organizational structures and processes in sync with your finance and risk strategies. Smart data and technology: Enable world-class finance and risk functions by deploying advanced analytics and digital technologies; assess and realize the potential of RegTech (regulatory technology) to strengthen your bottom line. Governmental and regulatory affairs: Apply rapidly changing legal and regulatory requirements to enhance strategic and operational agility throughout your organization.
