Capco, the global provider of consulting and managed services to the financial services industry, today announced its unveiling of a dedicated North American Banking Group.

The expansion will allow banks to capitalize on Capco's strategic expertise to advance and grow their business, amid the changing environment in regulatory reforms, market risk and consumer behavior.

Capco recently announced a group-driven North America growth strategy to serve the needs of a broader range of clients. The Banking Group is the first to be unveiled and will deliver industry-focused consulting services and solutions in three key functional domains: Payments, Lending, and Commercial/Retail Banking.

With offices across North America, the Banking Group consists of an integrated, full-service team of professionals with deep, first-hand industry expertise. Capco Partner Matthew Cohn, who has 20 years of financial services industry and consulting experience, will lead the group, which will focus on consulting, technology and managed services. Cohn has served many of the world's leading banks across the full functional spectrum.

"The banking industry is facing a perfect storm as regulatory reform, increased capital requirements, market forces, credit risk, merger integration and changing consumer spending behavior transform the industry's landscape," said Capco Partner Matthew Cohn. "In response to these market dynamics, institutions must be more transparent and better able to assess and adjust portfolio risk in real-time, across their entire enterprise. The days of data silos and segmented strategies are over. As a result, we're seeing significant demand from financial institutions for more comprehensive customer relationship management, risk management and real-time information management solutions. Capco has unparalleled experience in these areas in the financial services space."

Capco serves more than 75 of the world's top 100 leading financial institutions; its Banking Group provides clients with consulting services and solutions in:

  • Multi-Channel Marketing and Distribution;
  • Business and Technology Strategy;
  • Target Operating Model and Operational Excellence;
  • Program and Project Management;
  • Merger Integration and Value Realization; and
  • Information and Data Management

In addition, the Capco Banking Group has deep expertise and centers of excellence around topics including Payment Strategy and Integration, Branch/Distribution Transformation and Portfolio Risk Management.

"To help institutions secure enduring competitive advantage, we've attracted the industry's top talent to our Banking Group," added Cohn. "To meet our clients' needs, we're developing customized solutions to drive the development and execution of their lending, deposit and payment strategies. We're identifying and addressing critical business and technology issues faced by global business and consumer payments providers. And we're helping banks improve their business and portfolio reporting so they have immediate, accurate information about credit quality and other risk factors affecting their business. Banks must invest in their future growth - now - within this unique window of opportunity, but they also have to be prepared for any and every potential new challenge."
