Financial Services

What has changed in Financial Services?

The global banking and financial crises of the last 10 years have led to serious changes in the financial sector, with major consequences especially for banks and insurance companies. In particular, regulatory and legal requirements (Basel III, MiFID II, 4.EU Money Laundering Directive, etc.) pose enormous challenges for the industry. The implementation of these guidelines is without precedent, but often also very complex and involves high costs.

On the earnings side, the sustained low interest rate has been heavily under pressure for years on interest income.

In addition, the ever-changing digitization of all areas of life has drastically changed the needs and requirements of customers and employees, and are posing further challenges for financial services providers.

4C GROUP is official partner of Workday

Workday is a leading provider of enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources. Founded in 2005, the company provides financial management, human capital management and analytics applications for large corporations, educational institutions and government agencies worldwide. From mid-sized companies to Fortune 50 companies, organizations have already chosen Workday.

"My first experience with the 4C GROUP was in 2014 in the context of the 'NextGeneration HR' reorganisation. Both Dr. Mauterer and Mr. Baier impressed me with their relevant experience, expertise, methodology and personal commitment. On the basis of this positive experience, I recruited Dr. Mauterer to work in the DIN standards committee 'Human Resources Management', where he is still an internationally sought-after expert and partner at DIN/ISO level with a current focus on 'Human Capital Reporting' (ISO30414). Dr. Mauterer has played a major role in shaping the core elements of this standard and has syndicated them in international committees."
