banking capital markets

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.

To thrive in this environment, utilities must reexamine and, in many cases, transform their business models.

Whether the need is for office-based research and drafting, in-country consultations and workshops, or operational support, GSI is here for you.

innovations

  • Having a culture that supports innovation is key. An organization that is bogged down by politics or old-school methods has little chance of becoming innovative. Innovation consultants can look at an organization from an outside perspective to better identify where the problem areas are and apply their expertise to help eliminate those areas.
  • Client
  • Some larger firms offer innovation consulting as a part of management consulting.
  • Some boutique firms choose innovation consulting as their sole focus, offering expertise in this very niche but necessary area.
  • Still other innovation consultants concentrate on technology and product design, making sure offerings are presented in innovative ways.
  • Hiring
  • Innovation relies heavily on creative thinkers, and so hiring the right people is critical to creating an innovative organization. Innovation consultants can identify the type of talent needed and facilitate the hiring process to cultivate the right kind of talent pool.
  • Ideation
  • Oftentimes, R&D and L&D departments in an organization are blocked from truly innovating because of the organization’s processes. Silos and bureaucracy will prevent good ideas from being heard and acted upon. Innovation consultants can help organizations create processes that make it easy for new ideas to be heard and adopted and channels for better communication and collaboration around those ideas.
  • Identify New Markets
  • In order to stay even with competition, organizations struggling with innovation frequently attempt to imitate their competitors, going after the same target markets that their competitors do. Innovation consultants can help organizations identify new markets that are being underserved, targeting those instead to create an innovative product for a new customer base.
  • Innovation Goals
  • Businesses that start out as innovative ventures often scale to the extent that they lose their innovative edge. As they expand and focus on many offerings at once, they often reach the point where they must pour their resources into keeping the current business alive, rather than into creating innovative new offerings. Innovation consultants can help businesses construct a business plan and strategy that realigns goals around innovation.

Oil & Gas

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.

Power & Utilities

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.

We Are Here To Help


GSI’s consulting wing was established to work with humanitarian organizations, governments, the private sector and communities to improve disaster response, risk reduction and resilience, and to contribute to the expansion of research, knowledge and innovation.

We offer a range of humanitarian consultancy and advisory services including, strategy consulting, employee assessment, psychosocial training and support, leadership selection and development, disaster risk management, participatory disaster risk management (PDRM), participatory project management (PPM), disaster response and preparedness, capacity development, global development,, humanitarian research, and more.

We provide a global perspective on local issues. They bring a depth of knowledge, ideas and practical solutions, drawn from their personal experience in many disaster-affected countries, as well as from their international and comparative legal and policy research.

Whether the need is for office-based research and drafting, in-country consultations and workshops, or operational support, GSI is here for you.

  • Having a culture that supports innovation is key. An organization that is bogged down by politics or old-school methods has little chance of becoming innovative. Innovation consultants can look at an organization from an outside perspective to better identify where the problem areas are and apply their expertise to help eliminate those areas.
  • Client
  • Some larger firms offer innovation consulting as a part of management consulting.
  • Some boutique firms choose innovation consulting as their sole focus, offering expertise in this very niche but necessary area.
  • Still other innovation consultants concentrate on technology and product design, making sure offerings are presented in innovative ways.
  • Hiring
  • Innovation relies heavily on creative thinkers, and so hiring the right people is critical to creating an innovative organization. Innovation consultants can identify the type of talent needed and facilitate the hiring process to cultivate the right kind of talent pool.
  • Ideation
  • Oftentimes, R&D and L&D departments in an organization are blocked from truly innovating because of the organization’s processes. Silos and bureaucracy will prevent good ideas from being heard and acted upon. Innovation consultants can help organizations create processes that make it easy for new ideas to be heard and adopted and channels for better communication and collaboration around those ideas.
  • Identify New Markets
  • In order to stay even with competition, organizations struggling with innovation frequently attempt to imitate their competitors, going after the same target markets that their competitors do. Innovation consultants can help organizations identify new markets that are being underserved, targeting those instead to create an innovative product for a new customer base.
  • Innovation Goals
  • Businesses that start out as innovative ventures often scale to the extent that they lose their innovative edge. As they expand and focus on many offerings at once, they often reach the point where they must pour their resources into keeping the current business alive, rather than into creating innovative new offerings. Innovation consultants can help businesses construct a business plan and strategy that realigns goals around innovation.

  • How We Can Help
  • We help mining leaders hone strategies to deliver consistent value-creation in a volatile world, transform their operational performance and organizational effectiveness, and deliver step-change improvements right across the value chain, from resource efficiency and capital productivity to marketing.
