Market changes and increased regulation are forcing banks and other market participants to undertake profound transformation. In addition, fierce competition is forcing firms to be proactive in their market approach. Not only do they need to offer products that take the complexity out of financial decisions, engagement has to be based on the lifestyle of the customer (from university studies, new home, family, retirement, etc) rather than on mere banking products.

A new approach to banking has started to emerge and although the so-called neo-banks and big GAFA players still have a discreet presence in terms of market share, they have initiated a wave that will continue to grow until it fully transforms the industry.

For many banks, ensuring that their IT systems are in a position to support this transformation remains a daunting task. At GFT, we understand banking and financial services and we know IT inside out. We help firms to adopt the technology that supports their business transformation, while ensuring a perfect fit with their legacy systems.

Our offerings place you in the fast track, empowering clients right across the financial services landscape, including:

Why transform your business

Be ready for your customers

Put customers at the centre of your business by redesigning banking interactions to offer a contextualised and hyperpersonalised experience anytime and anywhere.

Don’t waste your money

The cost of IT operations is rising continuously – eating into budgets you’d prefer to invest in innovation. We help you identify areas for optimisation, from application management to mainframes.

Turn threats into opportunities

We help our clients understand the impacts of regulatory change and how to derive maximum benefit from compliance investments.

Banks find themselves in a challenging situation. They have to modernise their IT infrastructure to meet new customer demands and regulatory requirements, but at the same time they need to cut operational costs. We’ve been working with banks for more than 30 years, helping them transform into true digital banks.”
