TFE-Modus: The strategic change imperative

The old business models are dead. Revenues are challenged as spreads and fees narrow. Capital and leverage regulations are making whole business lines uneconomic. Unfortunately many firms still operate complex silo business operating platforms for a previous ere – platforms that are too expensive for the new world.

Operating platforms of the future will be different. Firms have little choice but to consider tactical change – “how can we do more with less” – but victory will go to the firms who also embrace strategic change
