NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Genpact Limited (NYSE: G), a global leader in transforming and running business processes and operations, and Oliver Wyman, a leading global management consulting firm, today announced a collaboration to design and deliver new risk management solutions to the financial services industry. This collaboration will further expand the suite of offerings that each firm currently provides to this sector.
With a growing importance being placed on not only well-designed, but also well-executed risk management solutions in the financial services sector, this collaboration aims to link the elements of risk management strategy, process design, and process delivery into a comprehensive client solution.
While both firms will continue to independently serve the financial sector with their full suite of risk management offerings, the objective of this collaboration is to provide selected clients with a more integrated and cost effective risk management solution to cope with many of the economic and regulatory challenges the financial services industry is currently facing. This collaboration is intended to provide clients with a comprehensive end-to-end solution that combines the highest quality risk strategy and methodological thinking with world-class operational execution to address issues around risk data governance,data management, model development, risk monitoring, and risk reporting to management and regulators in a consistent and high quality way.
This collaboration is intended to deliver the best of both firms. Oliver Wyman, with its extensive risk management strategy and implementation expertise, will focus on designing and customizing solutions that meet client and regulator needs, while Genpact, a leader in business process management (BPM) and risk analytics solutions, will focus on the cost effective delivery and operation of those solutions.
The joint offering will provide:
Greater speed of execution as clients move from design, to implementation, to ongoing operations
Reduced execution risk through the early engagement of BPM services
Better knowledge transfer and collaboration between the solution design and delivery teams
Increased flexibility for clients to scale projects up and down in response to internal and regulatory demands
Better access to talent across the globe
