GFT expands specialist Business Consulting group with Nick Nicholls


London, 17th March 2015: GFT, the leading provider of business, design and technology consulting to the investment banking community, today announces the appointment of Nick Nicholls as a Principal Consultant, focussing on Business Architecture and Process Re-Engineering.

Nick brings over thirty years of experience in investment banking and capital markets, working in prominent roles across front, middle and back office functions.

Prior to joining GFT, Nick spent 32 years at Credit Suisse where he worked in liquidity management, collateral optimisation and business re-engineering roles. Nick has also been instrumental in creating Target Operating Model’s for tier 1 banks and consulting banks with their migration and entity rationalisation programmes.

Specialising in business architecture and process re-engineering, he has extensive experience of creating processes that incorporate efficiencies within workflows that enhance profitability, whilst also assisting clients with their regulatory obligations.

At GFT, Nick will be heavily involved with business architecture for tier 1 and 2 clients, including creating central funding models, and providing assistance in implementing processes to improve their capability in managing collateral and liquidity. He will be a key force in designing and implementing tactical and strategic initiatives for tier 1 banks, a large part of which will be ensuring that that clients comply with many new regulations, such as BCBS248, BCBS261 and Basel III, whilst also controlling costs within these processes.

I’m really looking forward to taking a hands on role and assisting the team to implement further strategic initiatives for an impressive client roster of tier 1 and tier 2 banks.”
