FINANCIAL SERVICES

Smart transformation partner with financial services and regulatory experience.

Investment banks and asset managers are dealing with a complex portfolio of change and regulatory initiatives still dominate the landscape. Firms are currently focusing on the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR), the bedding down of MiFID II, as well as the prospect of the LIBOR transition exercise which is looming large. Most firms are concurrently running significant Brexit programmes trying to manage future uncertainty.

PROGRAMME PRIORITISATION AND HARD CHOICES

Running multiple, complex programmes with overlapping delivery timelines is a real challenge even for experienced senior executives. Additionally, financial institutions are increasingly under pressure to minimise cost. When all programmes appear non-discretionary and spending structures are a daily reality, delivering with innovative and nimble teams has become a necessity.

Powerful and pragmatic delivery management

Do your programmes have the right leadership, drive and innovative thinking to deliver lasting change?

Right regulatory expertise

How do you balance the need for sufficient regulatory knowhow and relevant understanding of the way your business works?

Dependable and consistent change partners

Where do you look for trustworthy advisors who prioritise your agenda over their own?

STRATEGIC ADVISORY AND HANDS-ON DELIVERY EXPERIENCE

Gate One delivers innovative solutions, reliable programme management and relevant regulatory expertise to our capital markets clients. We regularly work with requirements across the front and back office functions. We have strong experience in leading successful programmes in regulatory compliance, client outreach and new product development. Our capabilities also include digital transformation and culture change which we use to our advantage to produce real value adds to our clients.

Mission-critical fincrime initiative

The client required a major regulatory financial crime remediation programme with aggressive timescales and a pan-global transformation of payment messages.

Gate One led the design and implementation of the programme to scrub and validate client data with a hands-on approach. We set up a robust yet agile transformation programme of payments messages and drove delivery, issue resolution and strategic decision making at pace. Together with our investment banking client, we delivered a best in class payments compliance capability.

Regulatory client outreach

Gate One implemented an internal operating model for regulatory client outreach for Dodd Frank, EMIR, ASIC and FinfraG regulations.

We led the end to end client process including the prioritisation of outreaches, the process to manage client queries, real-time status tracking and the creation of high quality, automated MI. Our team succeeded in hitting the relevant regulatory deadlines leaving behind a robust blueprint for future regulatory outreaches.

Product innovation launch

We partnered with the client’s sales and technology teams to develop new regulatory technology solutions for capital markets clients. In addition to working with many banks on the design of these new facilities, Gate One led the flagship implementation programme for one of these regulatory tools with a European banking client.

Gate One developed an end to end plan to transition external service usages across all major business areas and successfully delivered the foundation programme.

FROM CHALLENGE TO OPPORTUNITY

WE ARE A VALUES-BASED FIRM WITH A TEAM OF HIGH PERFORMING AND EXPERIENCED CONSULTANTS

Gate One is committed to the success of our clients and we take real accountability for results. Our engagement model is to deploy small, strategic teams to focus on our clients’ requirements instead of our own.
