How can Banks grow with renewed confidence – but keep their feet on the ground?
2013 has been another year of consolidation, with Investment Banks continuing to foster a more stable operating environment.
Analysts are now reporting a more positive outlook as monetary policies take effect – despite further predicted challenges in the coming 12 months. Bank restructuring is also seeing Investment Banks post impressive results.

Fundamental RestructuringThe clearest theme, as we look ahead, is that of continued restructuring. Investment Banks are having to go beyond cost-cutting by adding value innovatively and in a commercially responsible way. Any institution that can adapt its operating model to incoming regulation will capture competitive advantage.
Papers in this strategic grouping include:

Restructuring the Investment Bank: Streamlining and Rationalising
A New Ecosystem: Using Utilities to Share the Load
Improving on the BasicsThe next 12 months will require Banks to rethink their core functions: the Investment Banking ‘basics’. This will ensure that funding is as sustainable as possible, trading behaviours are effectively tracked, and that the work of the CFO’s group drives change.
Positioning for GrowthWhile Banks consolidate the foundations for future high performance, they will also need to look beyond traditional banking methods to gain competitive edge. From leveraging new technologies to innovative compensation to secure and retain the best talent, Banks require fresh perspective to get ahead – and stay there.

New Disruptive Technologies: Seizing The Opportunity
Rethinking The Digital Proposition: Providing Information Clients Really Need

The year ahead will undoubtedly be another challenging one. Never before have Investment Banks had to compete on so many fronts, but 2014 represents the first year since 2007 for potential growth-on-growth. From restructuring, to regulation, to harnessing new technologies, these papers embody the collective thinking of Accenture’s Global Capital Markets Leadership Team, who continue to work closely with leading industry participants to deliver comprehensive solutions to these challenges
