Finance & Performance Management

Transparency, logic, efficiency – core factors of the company’s success

Are your organization's processes state-of-the-art?

In order to be prepared for the future and to secure your company’s economic and financial success, it is important to include markets and market changes in the evaluation.

The increasing volatility of the markets as well as the increasing regulatory pressure on the financial industry will continue to challenge the corporate finance departments.

Good reporting should reduce complexity, promote understanding and interpretation of key figures, minimize redundancies all the way to
elimination and increase the quality of the corporate management system.

In reporting, quality is more important than quantity

Andreas Crucius, Founder and CEO

The financial markets remain in motion. Its players – banks, insurance companies, funds, etc. – are not only burdened by the ongoing euro debt crisis and the low interest rate environment. A further challenge, especially for the banks, is the much tighter regulatory framework and the installation of new supervisory structures.

As a result, business models need to be adjusted and supply structures shift – a process that will continue for a long time to come and leaving a clear mark on the financial industry. It is obvious that such upheavals and restructuring will make corporate financing difficult or at least lasting. Many companies see themselves forced to rethink their usual financing patterns and to realign or exchange individual financing modules.

Our Approach

Against the backdrop of developing financial markets, it is necessary to properly define the objectives of the funding structures. The information basis for corporate management decisions must be precisely tailored.

From our point of view, the following key success factors must be tackled:

    • Process of corporate planning including forecasting
    • Working capital management
    • Group reporting and consolidation
    • Revision of the control impulses and KPIs
    • “Financial Data Management” or even master data and synchronization of the process

These success factors must be discussed in light of the following topics:

    • Assessment of the current earnings, assets and financing situation
    • Positioning in the market and competition
    • Strength and weakness analysis for the individual business units
    • Review of corporate strategy
    • Plausibility of the planning and the processed planning premises
    • Development of a catalog of measures to strengthen revenues and liquidity
