Banking today requires anew strategy.  With the current economic environment and regulators handing out orders, banks and management need new tools to keep ahead.  At De Novo Strategy, we develop new strategies to help banks and bankers navigate these difficult times.

The successful banks are not taking the “business as usual” approach, they are aggressively managing their portfolio, and they are using compliance management to help the bank strategically.  They are aggressively working with the board and management to properly assess their needs.  There is no doubt that banking today is the hardest it has ever been, often it seems like everyone is beating up the bankers, when they are working to fix things and save their banks.

We are here to support banking by providing new strategies that work!

Three Ways You Could Benefit From Some Outside Help

1. We help those who don’t want to go it alone
Stop reading this if you are a professional investment advisor. Stop reading if you can afford not to worry about getting the most from your investments. Stop reading if the stock market is your hobby so you have fun experimenting and making transactions. If you are any of those people you probably don’t want any help—you can do it all yourself.

If you are not a professional investor but care just as much as they do about making sure your money does well, then you probably wish you had an expert to give you advice and to help manage your accounts—without skimming most of the money as fees.  More...


Continuous Compliance is Critical ...

Organizations must meet the challenge of being compliant with multiple regulatory requirements while, at the same time, improving efficiency and the bottom line. More than ever companies must invest in security compliance initiatives to remain successful. Those initiatives cannot, and need not, impair standard business processes. Compliance should be integrated seamlessly into the business and its culture. MORE
