  • Some background

    Our work is a unique portfolio

    Imagining the future of global finance

    Our metrics have provided the major infrastructure players in global finance with unique insights into how the future global financial infrastructure will function. We have been trusted to take the 5 and 10 year view of how the roles and revenues within the global financial order will change, detailing which organisations are at risk and why, and how burgeoning south-to-south trade flows will alter the existing banking system.

    Interpreting the business platform

    We have analyzed new ways of conducting business in financial services. Drawing on work in The Elastic Enterprise, Shift and Platform Disruption Wave we have helped major institutions to redefine how they function around business platforms, specifically looking at the new process models that make platforms work effectively and profitably.

    Grappling with the future of transaction banking

    We have undertaken unique semantic analysis of the huge body of thinking that is going on around the future of the transaction bank, globally, allowing us to identify user needs and priorities across multiple industries. Our unique approach to analytical work gives us the ability to create an overview of this important area of banking, where no overview existed before. We have identified over 80 major issues in transaction banking, any combination of which provides valuable intelligence to companies planning Transaction Bank futures.

    At Risk/Opportunity Index

    We study where the new money pools are forming in the global economy. Clients can sign up to our multi-cient studies and subscription updates. This research is essential data for planning new projects and new revenue streams.
