In the current economic and financial climate banks are faced with a multitude of business challenges that need to be addressed. The continuing efforts to improve the balance sheet are of paramount importance and often involve tough divestment and deleveraging decisions in difficult market conditions. Another focus of management is on how to manage through a period of particularly high impairments and low net interest margins. Last but not least there are the consequences of state aid and reputational damage to be worked through as well as the looming specter of increased regulation.


KPMG’s Global Banking practice brings together knowledge and experience from KPMG member firms around the world to help banks manage the challenges they are facing. With a wealth of industry experience and specialist knowledge, our firms’ banking professionals can add value to your business.
