Banking & Insurance

Financial sector faces a variety of complex challenges

The financial sector is facing a variety of complex challenges from tighter regulations, unstoppable digitalization, and increasing competition from start-ups and technology companies. At the same time, outdated IT systems and historically evolved processes are often slowing down rapid change. With our many years of experience, we can help you master these challenges and gain a competitive advantage over your competitors.

The pressure for change isgreater than ever before.

The pressure for change is
greater than ever before.

Banks and insurance companies must be much more consistent in their focus on customer needs and keep pace with agile competition. Hence, it is important to realize your growth potential in this challenging environment and transform yourself into an integrated financial services provider using today's technology. This offers you a number of opportunities, such as the revival of branch business with new, innovative concepts, industry 4.0 in corporate banking or insurance, personal finance management, payment transactions of the future, prospects for digitized insurance sales, private banking and wealth management, the step to an agile bank / insurance company or partnerships with FinTech / InsurTech companies. The use of data in advisory and internal operational excellence is key. As an independent Swiss consulting firm, AWK supports you in this process and helps you at the interface between IT, Legal, Operations and Business. One part of this change is always the increasing need for data and infrastructure protection. Accordingly, AWK offers you additional expertise in information security, cybersecurity and data protection.

In addition to the AWK core services, we offer you
