  • Foster cohesion in key executive’s mental models

Scenario Planning for the Future of Financial Services

We have substantial experience and expertise in applying scenario planning in financial services.

Traditional scenario planning approaches often need to be adapted to financial services environments, notably to suit the mindset of executives in the industry.

We have applied scenario planning in domains including:

  • Long-term corporate strategy. Programs to test, shape, and drive long-term strategy, involving CEO sponsorship and top-level management engagement.
  • Product and business model innovation. Exploration of potential directions in industry landscapes, competitive positioning, regulation and other factors to generate new business initiatives.
  • Bank-level risk management. Qualitative multi-dimensional risk assessment applied across operational, market, and financial risks.
  • Portfolio management. Broad environmental assessment of risks and opportunities for asset and liability portfolios.
