Volatile capital markets and the consequences of the financial crisis consistently lead to a strong transformation in the financial services sector. The overall weakened growth, the low yields in investment banking, higher equity costs and, last but not least, the development of new asset classes and financing instruments are leading to a rapid change in the finance sector.

Furthermore, the following challenges need to be successfully confronted: banks – and with them the monitoring – still have no existing risk transparency. The capital endowment of the credit economy is insufficient. The cessation of large contribution margins as a result of the continued portfolio reduction is ruining banks’ profitability. And the low-interest environment is impeding a recovery of the sector on the basis of internal financing.

In this environment, characterised by fierce competition, the factors that are critical for the success of every company are customer-orientation, innovative strategies, and efficient processes. Against this background, top managers from the industry have to demonstrate excellent skills in competence areas that were previously less relevant.
