Transactions in financial services  

The financial services industry is facing an increasingly complex regulatory environment, resulting in unprecedented business and operating model challenges but also creating opportunities for M&A, growth and development.

What are your challenges?

To remain competitive and flexible in the face of the emerging challenges in the new financial services world, a clear strategy for growth is imperative:


  • Define your target business models, focusing on markets, clients and products, and considering “where you want to be”
  • Articulate your growth strategy after undertaking a thorough assessment of your goals
  • Consider threats and opportunities for both organic and M&A-driven growth
  • Consider regulatory developments which may lead to M&A – Basel III and Solvency II will have greater capital requirements, which may mean non-core asset disposals
  • Manage your rising cost base, streamline operations, people and services
