Corporate & Institutional Banking
Widely recognized as influential thought-leaders, we draw on a deep knowledge of our clients' businesses and our own in-depth industry research to develop sustainable strategies for our clients in Investment Banking, Corporate & Commercial Banking and Asset Management.
Corporate Strategy in Corporate & Institutional Banking
Oliver Wyman helps companies evolve corporate strategies to identify and realize opportunities for growth. Whether evaluating a merger, acquisition, investment, or divestiture opportunity, we provide our clients with the perspective they need to make decisions in any business environment.
Global Transaction Banking
Oliver Wyman is the market leader in transaction banking strategy and research and has worked extensively on business model, operating model and organization projects for transaction banks and wholesale banks' transaction banking divisions. Our work spans payments and cash management, trade finance, supply chain finance, receivables finance and securities services.
Individual Performance Measurement and Compensation
We design specific risk-adjusted performance measures at both the individual and business-line levels. Companies work with us to develop incentive structures, link risk-adjusted performance measures and compensation sensitivity, and to integrate incentive compensation with strategic planning and budgeting.
By accounting for share-of-wallet, customer needs and organization, and market dynamics, we help gain a better understanding of client (risk adjusted) profitability. We evaluate coverage models both within and across products. Our clients benefit from our expertise with buy- and sell-side clients to address micro and macro issues relevant to coverage, service levels and relationship management.
At the forefront of identifying new growth paths in the financial services industry, our published work and extensive experience provides our clients with a unique vantage point on the strategic issues of asset management.
We help clients quantify, manage and transfer credit risks. Several banks have followed our techniques to separate origination from portfolio investment. Where liquidity does not yet exist, we have helped realize similar benefits through the creation of internal portfolio groups to proactively manage the credit portfolio. Working with several banks, our firm has helped them to reduce losses, improve diversification and increase capital velocity in their portfolios.
Our proprietary framework benchmarks and analyzes the value payback of credit activities. It has helped our clients reduce process costs by 25 to 35 percent, while increasing resources devoted to activities with a higher payback.
