Fast and successful digital transformation is more wanted than ever in the financial industry. Sustainability criteria, declining margins, and technology companies from outside the industry are giving companies a hard time. That is why many of the institutions are looking for experienced consulting partners - but there is a lot on offer! After all, there are around 20,000 consulting companies in Germany alone. However, only a few among them are sufficiently specialized to support financial institutions in the digital alignment of their business model.
"We are proud to be listed among the most renowned consulting firms in Handelsblatt," says a delighted Hendrik Kurz, member of the syracom executive board and head of the banking division. "Digitalization and automation will continue to accompany us. We currently see the greatest challenge in the topic of sustainability. Efficient implementation in the company will be an exciting topic in the coming years. We are glad that we can offer our customers the right solutions for this."
The Wiesbaden-based consultancy is part of the Consileon Group. Consileon is also among the winners. With the award, the Handelsblatt confirms the two companies' expertise in advising banks and financial service providers. The consulting firms are thus continuing the success story that has earned them the "Best Consultants" award from business magazine brand eins for the past six years.
What criteria were used to determine the winners?
For the analysis, HRI first identified a peer group of 550 management consultants from over 90 consulting firms active in the field of "consulting for banks and financial service providers." This peer group was asked who the most renowned firms in this consulting field are. The top list is the result of this survey.
