Business and IT Strategy
Our experienced consultants have worked closely designing and implementing strategies with our clients on the following topics:
Risk and Compliance Target Operating Model Design
The complex regulatory requirements currently imposed on organisations require detailed planning and a strategic view to ensure appropriate reporting, escalation and alignment across the organisation. Our consultants have designed and implemented target operating models to support the regulatory reporting and control framework at Global, European, Emerging Markets and North American banks. We can design transitional frameworks to move your organisation or division from where you are today to the Target Operating Model required for your organisation in the future.
Front to Back Business and IT Strategy including Algorithmic and HFT Trading
Algorithmic and HFT trading has had a substantial impact on trading and profitability from front to back across markets. We have experience of developing strategies to build the systems and processes to enable your organisation to benefit from these changes.
IT Vendor Strategy
With many vendor choices available across the IT landscape, all offering their benefits and not necessarily the limitations of their software, Brickendon can provide an independent consulting service to assist in the selection. Our Consultants have been on proof of concept projects at major Global, European, Asian and EM banks and bring cross software and asset class expertise. Our expertise has been used by our clients to not only decide on which software to purchase but also in commercial negotiations with the vendors on the pricing plans.
Business Process Re-Engineering
Our experienced consultants have implemented change programmes at major organisations, redesigning the business and IT systems and processes. We have analysed and designed the activities and associated workflow in and around an organisation to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality. Value-creation for the customer or the business user is a leading factor for BPR engagements with information technology often being the enabler. We have extensive experience helping our customers rethink existing process, adopt new value systems and deliver value through in-depth analysis of trade in motion.
