Capco Helps Leading German Universal Bank to Consolidate IT Infrastructure

Post-Merger Integration (PMI) engagement identifies opportunities to meet firm’s needs through architectural integration.

Capco was engaged to help meet the PMI challenges of a newly-merged German universal bank, focusing on the consolidation of the IT operations behind its investment banking back office. We helped the bank to determine the future architecture for managing foreign exchange (FX) derivatives based on the systems operated by the two predecessor firms.

The Capco team conducted workshops to define the options for FX derivatives migration, documenting the results and the underlying assumptions and dependencies. We then assessed the options and prepared a recommended target IT architecture, taking into account functional and technical requirements, costs, timeline, business strategy, and operational and project risk.
