Knadel's knowledge

The challenge of implementing new business modes

Our practical and pragmatic first hand experience of investment business operations provides a unique perspective of how to successfully implement new or revised models. This ensures full adoption and consequent benefit realisation is achieved in a cost effective and timely manner.

Effective introduction of new technology

With an ever-growing range and complexity of applications, successful integration is increasingly dependent on a full understanding of, and delivery to, user expectation and needs. Knadel’s implementation approach combines both strong technical skills with a fundamental understanding of the business drivers and needs to be satisfied. This ensures that technology implementations are effective, meet the business requirements specified, and are properly adopted so as to realise real business benefits.

Mutually successful implementation of outsourcing

Outsourcing is a complex area, and success can rely on there being convergent goals between two parties. Implementing a new yet shared operating model, data solution and servicing structure across two very different parties, often with divergent goals can be fraught with problems, confusion and delays. 

Knadel’s extensive experience of outsourcing – including second-generation conversions and consolidations – is second to none.  Effective implementation will be delivered by both a successful execution of the migration plan and a successful introduction of future state operating routines.
