Client-orientated trading and settlement solutions

Banking Business Consultancy

Banking Business Consultancy

Together with our clients, we develop and implement modern trading and settlement solutions based on marketable technologies. This includes business analyses as well as the adaptation of existing systems.

The trading environment of a bank and the finance departments of companies often struggle between profitability, risk minimization and legal requirements. From a technological perspective, this means a sound knowledge of financial instruments is required, as technical processes, legal requirements and current IT systems must be taken into account.

The Trading & Financial Markets service chain

With a holistic view of banking and financial processes and an intelligent methodology, 50 qualified consultants from the fields of business analysis and IT implementation lead projects to success within the defined budget and time frame. We adapt standard software from the environment of Trading & Financial Markets to the technical and process-specific conditions of our clients. We accompany them from the system assessment and selection to the commissioning of the trading and settlement software.

System assessment

By asking the right questions, you can arrive at better solutions. We know where to start and we do this on a maker-neutral basis – with our many years of experience with a huge range of system makers. We carry out system assessments according to requirements. Traceability is the overriding principle here, so that our clients’ management can make the right decisions.

Services

Project planning/project management

Different clients and situations require different methods. That is why we always plan on a client-specific basis. Our project management is comprehensibly effective, in time – in budget – in functionality.

Services

Requirement management

We consider the requirements of our clients end-to-end, with all dependencies and complexities. All client requirements are fully formulated so that they can then be prioritised.

Services

Business analysis

We conduct business analysis with a deep understanding of technical processes and realities, combined with a comprehensive knowledge of market trading and settlement systems. We work in a client-orientated manner by consistently involving the specialist and IT areas of our clients in order to ensure the transfer of know-how.

Services

Test management

Already during the first requirements analysis we think about the measurability of the joint service. For this, we use different methods and approaches depending on the project requirements. We provide comprehensive test coverage to achieve high quality results.

Services

Customization, parameterization, development and implementation

Highest efficiency in software adaptations is our guiding principle. We work close to the standard, in the sense of the client, not in the sense of the service provider or the maker. We document our adaptations so that our clients can continue to work with them later. And we always keep an eye on the operation, maintainability and controllability of the solution for the business and IT areas.

We have the right answer for all regulatory challenges:

ESG

Since the publications of the Club of Rome on the effects of climate change (1972), the issue of sustainability has become increasingly relevant in the company. Even banks and financial organizations are increasingly confronted with the demand to operate sustainably. With the UN Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement, the EU Action Plan and the BaFin bulletin on dealing with sustainability risks, a large number of regulatory changes are on the horizon.
