The value chain in financial services and real assets will continue to change and new business models are emerging. Regulatory requirements are continuously increasing. Therefore, the ongoing assessment and reflection of the business model is essential. Likewise, the internal operating processes as well as the used IT landscape and its security will become important competitive factors.
Individual topics can no longer be treated as isolated incidents due their multitude and multiple overlaps. On the contrary a combination of measures is necessary to increase efficiency and effectiveness, always focusing on supervisory issues to be successful in the future.
It is against this background that VIVACIS has been founded. “VIVACIS” is Latin and means “durable” or “sustainable”. Following this motto, we cooperate with our clients and partners.
