Oliver Wyman draws on years of industry-shaping work in the Financial Services and Retail industries, deep digital expertise and our renowned research partners at Celent, to help our clients develop strategies that capitalize on industry developments.
We see payments as a key component of the broader customer experience rather than a standalone proposition. We work with clients across the payments value chain - from banks/issuers, to payments providers, to retailers – to build growth strategies, form effective partnerships, optimize costs, and manage risk.
We actively participate in the industry dialogue, contributing our thought leadership and participating in various payments events.
