Here’s a selection of projects we’ve been involved in to give you an idea of the kind of change we could initiate in your organisation.
Rapidly scaling a KYC refresh programme for a multinational Fund Service business
Key achievements Successful migration of our client’s AML- KYC operations function to Dublin Placement of a 70-person team transitioning it into a permanent AML function Improving KYC completion rates by implementing a robust operational structure Challenge Our client, a multinational Fund Administrator and Fund Service business, needed to rapidly scale up its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) team to meet the demands of a KYC Remediation Program to uplift the investor accounts for a large asset manager and key Transfer Agency client. Due to regulatory changes KYC profile of circa 8200 accounts needed to be reviewed/ uplifted. They also wanted to develop a more effective team to handle business-as-usual AML tasks maintaining the highest standards in an ongoing manner.
Creating a large tech team for a Global Investment Bank
Key achievements 35 consultants recruited within six weeks New team onboarded using a bespoke training plan 48% of new recruits were female 34 of 35 consultants retained in this hyper-competitive market
Increasing diversity and talent for a Credit Risk IT Group
Key achievements 10 consultants onboarded in just six weeks Diverse talent readily available in the Pioneer Programme Bespoke training for final three weeks before deployment 100% retention after 18-months Challenge In 2022, the Credit Risk IT group within a Tier 1 Investment Bank committed to increase Black and gender representation within their workforce. The existing team was only 20% female, mainly from white Anglo-Saxon or European backgrounds and all their UK graduate intake had come from top Red Brick or Ivy League universities for the previous four years.
Prospering Continuous Collaboration with a Major European Financial Institution
Key achievements Six Pioneer consultants on-boarded initially Mentored by two senior Practitioners Now supporting six different areas across the institution 15+ consultants deployed since the initial engagement Challenge The client has been using several contractors to work with Capital Markets to help build an API to process data and display this information in a GUI. But contractors can be expensive and due to short notice periods and lack of affiliation can often leave with little or no notice. This means IP leaves the business exposing knowledge gaps and delaying important milestones and deliveries.
Meeting the urgent staffing needs of an IT team with diverse talent
Key achievements Diverse workforce achieved 100% retention rate Bespoke training programme Client coaching important part of the process Challenge Our client was responsible for migrating applications to the Cloud, but was falling behind due to understaffing. The company needed two new junior product owners, four developers and three business analysts. Budget restrictions were blocking them from using their Graduate Scheme, their normal recruitment channel.
