Caught in a vise between challenging markets and relentless technological change, financial institutions face new strategic challenges from growing political uncertainty, paradigm-busting competitors, and an increasingly complex policy environment. Reflecting the unprecedented competitive and strategic challenges the banking sector now confronts, Federal Financial Analytics (FedFin) and Treliant are launching a first of its kind alliance combining forward-looking policy analysis with compliance capabilities to give clients the vital strategic edge successful companies will need as the business environment continues to evolve into an unprecedented market landscape.
Banks of all sizes spent considerable resources to revise their operations after post-crisis regulatory reforms, but the environment continues to change at ever increasing speeds. No longer can firms silo forward-looking policy analyses from their risk, compliance, and technological implementation capabilities as they explore adding, augmenting, or shedding business lines. This alliance ensures that firms will have the capacity to change as quickly as the business environment, allowing them to be the first to gain strategic advantage from emerging challenges and opportunities.
"Regulators continue to enforce compliance, risk, and policy requirements vigorously across the entire industry," said Treliant Chief Executive Officer B. Scott Fisher. "The FedFin/Treliant Alliance allows us to provide clients with timely, actionable, strategic, and tactical advice by anticipating future industry and regulatory configurations and deploying those insights to give clients a winning competitive advantage in rapidly evolving markets."
"One of the challenges our clients frequently encounter after we solve for policy problems is what to do next. Working with Treliant, we can now not only identify and solve for these, but also implement solutions tailored to the individual needs of the client," said FedFin Managing Partner Karen Shaw Petrou. "This alliance expands our current capabilities to give financial institutions a one-stop-shop where they can plan for the future while wrestling with external challenges amid great uncertainty." FedFin and Treliant's industry thought-leaders and practitioners have years of hands-on experience and know-how that can accelerate clients' strategies and deliver outstanding performance results, while remaining within enterprise and regulatory risk tolerances.
