Financial Services

No matter whether banks, holding companies or leasing firms act as a player in financial services, you are confronted with ever faster changes and a continual increase in the number of requirements. Digitalization is not the only factor fundamentally changing banks and capital markets at their core; ongoing regulation and increasing economic insecurity are also major challenges.

Support for increasingly complex issues

More and more staff is involved in dealing with a complex regulatory environment and more and more of their time is taken up with complying with an ever growing number of regulations, resulting in their having insufficient time resources for attending to the core business of their financial services. Increasingly another issue arises concerning whether such business activities will still be attractive in terms of profitability, costs, equity and liquidity in the future. In order for you to meet your quality assurance requirements, we can support you in all your business management and supervisory issues (such as compliance, internal audit, risk management and compliance with the Anti-money Laundering Act,, the Ordinance on the Supervisory Requirements for Remuneration Systems of Financial Institutions, and the Minimum Requirements for Risk Management set by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority,) as well as in your training, audit or advisory needs.
