Why Leading Point?

Financial Market business models are under unprecedented pressures due to technology disruption, changing customer expectations, significantly higher regulatory & transparency requirements, entry of FinTech competitors and structural economic headwinds.

The changes needed to stay relevant in the market are not optional.

Yet too many organisations are saddled with high change and run costs, too many change projects that mirror the market hype & complexity of their operating environment, and too few projects that actually deliver business value.

Leading Point works with Financial Institutions as an Execution Partner to design and maximize their business value from strategic changes.

What do we do?

Leading Point specialises in creating value at the intersection of data, compliance, and operating model change initiatives with enabling tech.

Tackle the toughest business challenges with Data – We help put your critical data sets (sales, client, product, employee, transactions) under governance with measureable data quality, transform unstructured data such as legal agreements into enterprise wide usable business data, and make your data innovation-ready to fuel BlockChain, AI & Robotic Process Automation applications.

Gap-up to compliance requirements at sustainable costs – Our experts are seasoned in delivering complex industry wide compliance & control requirements which have included MiFID I, MiFID II, Solvency II, SM&CR, PSD2, KYC & AML. We are actively engaged in delivering upcoming requirements of GDPR, regulatory remediation, Brexit and SFTR.
Leading Point also helps your business significantly reduce cost of compliance with strategic regulatory reporting architecture, streamlined process & controls, and aggressive implementation of RegTechs.
