GBRW has a 20 year track record of financial sector consulting and training in emerging markets. We deliver successful assignments ranging from brief research studies and training courses, to major, long-term, multi-disciplinary change programmes. We are particularly valued by clients for:
GBRW's expertise covers the full range of commercial banking disciplines, from governance and strategy, finance and balance sheet management, organisational design and HR, credit, market and operational risk management, audit and compliance, and marketing and sales for the retail, SME and corporate banking customer sets.
We specialise in working with locally owned banks in emerging markets as they adapt to higher growth, competition, and risk, as international financial markets become deeper and more inter-connected.
GBRW can work with investors and management to establish new financial institutions anywhere in the world. Our greenfield project services focus on legal and regulatory compliance, organisational design and governance, and strategic and financial planning.
Having access to a large pool of policies and procedures, product specifications, tools, models, and methodologies means we can give your venture a flying start. We can also help with the identification and recruitment of a suitably experienced senior management team.
Development finance is an increasingly diverse and integral component of the global financial system. In addition to the well-known global and continental multi-lateral development banks (MDBs), there are increasing numbers of new players as emerging markets take the initiative with regional or domestic Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), with innovative and challenging new mandates.
GBRW has many years of experience and excellent credentials in all aspects of development finance. Download our Development Finance Capability Statement to find out more about what we do in this specialist field.
GBRW supports both buy-side and sell-side counterparties in transactions in emerging markets, particularly involving commercial banks. Notable services include buy-side and sell-side due diligence, and restructuring and privatisation of state-owned banks. We also support commercial banks with M&A strategy, and Post-Merger Integration. We work closely with legal and financial advisory specialists to provide complete support for clients.
In addition, we can also provide assistance to venture capital investors in start-up financial services, private equity investors, and both private and public sector fund managers on investments in emerging market financial institutions.
