Our advice helps clients make better decisions in the evolving world of financial services, which are increasingly subject to regulatory change, political scrutiny, credit and sovereign debt market crises, new technologies, and changing consumer expectations.
Our financial services work
We understand these pressures well. Using insights from the latest developments in economics we help our clients:
- understand market dynamics, and the changing behaviour of customers and competitors
- design practical commercial strategies
- frame powerful and persuasive regulatory arguments.
We have supported major commercial banks and credit card companies through competition and regulatory inquiries, including investigations on interchange fees. We’ve also advised regulators on financial market reforms and helped policymakers respond to technological developments in payment systems.
We have helped banks assess product placement and design. We have also advised stock exchanges on the pricing principles for clearance and settlement services.
