Reducing the operating costs associated with market data through volume reduction, new technology, and automation for a leading Germany-based global bank


The client is a leading Germany-based global bank with around 30,000 corporate clients and approximately 11 million private and small-business customers in Germany. With over € 467 billion in total assets, the client transacts roughly 30 percent of Germany’s foreign trade. 



Our client was looking for a suitable partner to reduce its cost of operations associated with market data through measures such as volume reduction, new technology utilization, and automation of transactional processes. The incumbent operations supplier was unable to meet the client’s expectations of a ‘specialty BPO’ partner, due to which the client was using siloed and manual operating models for managing its market data services. The manual processing of data by the client was taking too much time and leading to errors. The client also had to deal with the lack of a consolidated platform for viewing and reporting data across various business units, regions, and teams. 

The client was using manual operating models to manage its market data services
