October 2015 - Navint Executive Insight - Capital Utilization After The Financial Crisis

Executive Summary

Since the 2008 financial crisis, there has been an upward trend of corporate borrowings. For the last 7 years, interest rates have been at historic lows and firms have been taking advantage of the inexpensive financings. However, there is a shift in the paradigm which will make it more difficult in general for this trend to continue. Over the last six months, a number of interrelated factors have produced a more complex borrowing and lending marketplace.

It is time for companies to focus on their capital position and sources of new capital. The equity and debt markets are vehicles for corporations to obtain access to capital needed for innovation, value creation and growth. Without the steady increase in retained earnings combined with more costly sources of capital, companies need to better understand the cost of providing this scarce resource to competing CapEx initiatives within the firm.

September 2015 - Bridging the Gap: Solving the Challenge of Compliance and Data Governance

 Executive Summary

Banks are struggling to keep up with the data demands of regulators. New global regulations require Bank Compliance groups to provide greater transparency and dissemination of data including daily reporting, quarterly health checks, and annual stress testing. Banks are working hard to comply with these regulations and to remediate gaps in their data but most have not built the foundation of data governance required to align compliance policies with data governance, ownership and accountability. Frameworks and methodologies for data management and integrated systems architectures only take financial services firms so far. More novel approaches including the implementation of compliance and data management centers of excellence and new system architectures for record storage and retrieval should be key elements of any transformation effort.
