Thus we develop templates and assertions that are rigorously tested through applications in banks across the industry worldwide.
To address the needs of the industry we offer:

Your staff will be taught to develop their own benchmark management reports and SWOT analysis that can contribute to your bank’s own key performance indicators.
The Benchmarking Centre builds not only on the findings from and information collected through our awards programmes, but also through ongoing executive interviews and surveys, and our comprehensive data repository.
