Case study 1: Improving operational resilience for UK-based financial services firm
A UK-based financial services firm wanted to reduce operational risk, increase resilience, and enhance the customer experience.
Sheffield Haworth’s consulting team identified inefficiencies and duplication, re-engineered key processes to streamline workflows, and trained customer service reps. Removing process inefficiencies improved operating leverage by 5.2%, decreased operational losses by 74%, decreased operational risk events by 28%, and reduced temporary staff costs by 75% over a 24-month period.
Case study 2: Helping a tier 1 global investment bank meet its OTC trade reporting requirements
A tier 1 global investment bank was unsure if it could meet its regulatory reporting requirements for OTC trading due to a shortage of qualified testing experts inhouse.
Sheffield Haworth assembled a team of subject matter experts to undertake a GAP analysis and create a customised UAT and SIT testing solution and automation framework to speed delivery. The bank was able to execute the strategy to meet its regulatory reporting requirements to deadline.
Case study 3: Integrating UK wealth management businesses post-merger
A private equity backed UK fund manager needed help integrating several recent acquisitions.
Sheffield Haworth provided a core consulting team within the client’s COO function to advise on and deliver a group-wide target operating model. This resulted in the successful integration of 5 legacy wealth management businesses, including migrating over 100,000 clients onto a new CRM system, improving client onboarding, and implementing an enhanced sales forecasting model.
