Across the complex banking and capital markets industry, companies are under pressure to find new avenues for growth amidst continuing regulatory pressures and aging infrastructure. Post financial crisis, large banks had to address material legacy issues, clean up their balance sheets and bear the costs of new regulation, including significantly tighter prudential regulation through capital adequacy rules, while facing the pressures of a “lower for longer” interest rate environment.
These issues continue to be relevant, but the focus has now shifted toward adapting to the new world of “open banking” and big (or at least bigger) data, and investing heavily in technology to respond to nimbler, innovative models adopted by challenger banks and fintech players. In addition, banks of all sizes face the challenge of changing consumer behavior, driven by a combination of significant and increasing customer preferences for digital means of managing their finances and ongoing low engagement of most customers combined with a loss of trust in major brands.
GSI banking and capital markets specialists can help you navigate this environment and implement strategies that address regulatory reform, technological complexity, competitive dynamics, and market moves. We address industry issues by aligning our various consultative services to offer solutions to the challenges of the new normal.
The oil and gas industry is grappling with a range of complex challenges: energy transition, increasingly volatile oil prices, intensified global competition, the rise of disruptive technologies, and more sophisticated government regulations. These factors increase the complexity and risks for even the best-run firms. That’s why GSI is embracing new digital business models and an adaptive strategy, helping companies rise above industry perils to outflank competitors and thrive in the years ahead. Through digital technologies and advanced analytics, the pursuit of strategic insights, and deep experience and expertise, GSI’s oil and gas consulting delivers lasting change to clients around the globe.
After a long period of general stability, power and utility companies entered a time of significant change and uncertainty—beginning in 2010. Challenges include new and more stringent regulations, new forms of competition (even for regulated utilities), and questions about the best ways for power and gas grids to integrate conventional and renewable supplies. At the same time, digital is transforming how utilities serve customers, identify market opportunities, and plan for long-term growth. To thrive in this environment, utilities must reexamine and, in many cases, transform their business models.
