Corporate and Institutional Banking
As with investment banking, corporate finance relies on strong client relationships. Those in the industry need to maintain relationships with their clients, understand the specifics of their market and be aware of any new opportunities that may present themselves at any given time. The key to achieving all this is in enabling corporate financiers with data-driven insights.
Here are some of the ways in which Squirro for Corporate Financial Services can support corporate finance:
1. Source opportunities faster and more accurately
Corporate finance is an intensely competitive industry, and the need to identify strong opportunities before anyone else does is acute. That’s where Squirro for Corporate Financial Services really comes into its own. Because it manages such wide and varied volumes of structured and unstructured data – a CEO talking about a possible restructuring, an aside captured in a call note – it provides a true understanding of exactly what is happening in a market. This understanding means users can unearth new leads and deals as they happen, opportunities that they otherwise would not know existed.
2. Connect every client with the right products right when they need them
Specific needs can vary so greatly from client to client, that finding the right product for every opportunity can feel like an impossible task. The AI-driven recommendation engine of Squirro for Corporate Financial Services ensures that the right products are selected for every client based on their needs and the details of their current situation. With Squirro for Corporate Financial Services, you can take the guesswork out of serving your clients and deliver personalized service to every client.
3. Allow significant reductions in manual research hours
When tracking, planning or managing a deal, the manual research requirements are especially onerous within corporate finance, with users having to wade through CRM systems, call notes, transaction data and much more. The sheer volume of this data can be overwhelming and the fact that much of it is unstructured and / or siloed means that hundreds of hours can be spent on research. With Squirro for Corporate Financial Services, you can save substantially on research time, hours that can be better spent servicing clients.
