Summary

Transform your financial organisation’s formula for value creation with this insightful and strategic approach 

In Transforming Financial Institutions through Technology Innovation and Operational Change, visionary turnaround leader Joerg Ruetschi delivers a practical and globally relevant methodology and framework for value creation at financial institutions. The author demonstrates how financial organisations can combine finance strategy with asset-liability and technology management to differentiate their services and gain competitive advantage in a ferocious industry. 

In addition to exploring the four critical areas of strategic and competitive transformation — financial analysis, valuation, modeling, and stress — the book includes: 

  • Explanations of how to apply the managerial fundamentals discussed in the book in the real world, with descriptions of the principles for reorganization, wind-down and overall value creation 
  • An analysis of the four key emerging technologies in the financial industry: AI, blockchain, software, and infrastructure solutions, and their transformational impact 
  • Real-world case studies and examples on how financial institutions can be repositioned and rebuilt on a path of profitability 

Perfect for managers and decision makers in the financial services industry, Transforming Financial Institutions through Technology Innovation and Operational Change is also required reading for regulators, tech firms, and private equity and venture capital funds.
