    Top three reasons to think of Accenture in Core Banking

  • Our research and work with leading banks around the world that have already undergone or begun this transformation, has allowed us to identify eight key strands of high performance DNA that coupled with a mastery in execution excellence create a foundation for achieving growth and reigniting shareholder value:

    Customer centricuniversal banking model

    Multi-channel distribution model

    Industrialized operating model

    Prudent risk management policies

    Strong capital management discipline

    Ability to export and replicate the model

    Leading edge technology

    Superior talent management

    The structural transformation needed in most cases to achieve this high performance DNA often includes a core banking transformation. It is a strategic initiative to simplify and embed new capabilities into a banks operating model, enabling a more competitive way to connect with customers, manage costs, and drive profitability.

    Accenture views successful core banking transformation as a journey, and eachbanks journey is unique. Market conditions suggest an incremental approach toimplementation based on prioritized capabilities and near-term business needs. The right approach also includes having an experienced, multi-faceted technology partnera key to developing and maintaining innovative core banking capabilities.

    Execute with the right partnerThe new normal in the banking landscape is now visible (finally). In this new normal, a sustainable roe of 12 percent is a viable target. This is lower than what many, including Accenture, considered achievable for the worlds high performing institutions several years ago; and it will be a stretch for many others. The efforts to sustain or restore returns at this level are forcing most banks into a new wave of transformation that this time has to be structural.
