Our track record in Wholesale, Corporate and Commercial Banking

Broad and in-depth experience


While we have not worked in all aspects of the vast range of activities involved in commercial banking we have extensive experience in key areas. In particular we have been involved in a number of high profile and high risk integration of banking operations in the UK and mainland Europe.

The issues which we have helped clients successfully address include:

  • Developing and rolling out a standard operational model across national borders
  • Integrating wholesale and commercial banking operations post-merger
  • Planning the migration or run-off of lines of business, as appropriate
  • Assessing the financial and regulatory impact of merging/transferring business with different approaches to RWA, bad debt etc
  • Ensuring the integrity of the Finance functions supporting the corporate and commercial banking operations of merged financial institutions
  • Developing a consistent and replicable approach to risk management and Treasury
  • Managing all of this alongside regulatory changes such as Basel III
