The banking industry is a sector that is undergoing continuous change, with ever-increasing challenges that include regulatory issues, low interest rates and digitisation. Banks and building societies are also exposed to growing competitive pressure, forcing them to realign and optimise their business strategy with managers who can act prudently with their finger on the pulse of the market.
For several decades, our customers in the banking industry have benefited from our high market penetration and comprehensive network of contacts. In addition to private, commercial and foreign banks, we are particularly valued as advisors and contacts within savings bank organisations and the cooperative network. Our expertise covers all the operational areas, from sales to bank management and back office functions. We have consulted on a large number of positions, including roughly 30 appointments a year at board level.
