Consumer banking and wealth services

EY consumer banking and wealth teams implement integrated solutions to help with profitable growth, operational excellence, and safety and soundness priorities by combining deep market knowledge, innovative thinking and advanced technology.


What EY teams can do for you

Retail banks must contend with a combination of urgent challenges — from shifting consumer needs to intensifying competition from non-traditional players to macroeconomic headwinds. With fee income falling and transaction volumes decreasing, banking executives must look to fresh approaches and entirely new strategies if they are to maintain market leadership and unlock profitable growth.

The EY consumer banking and wealth teams offer a suite of solutions, including disruptive growth strategies and tech implementations that help drive results. And our managed services offerings provide modernized systems and connected capabilities that support highly efficient operations and long-term value creation.

We maintain productive strategic ecosystem collaboration in critical areas — innovation and experience design, sales and marketing, automation and transaction processing — to create new value streams and support large-scale transformation programs.

Based on proven methodologies and reusable assets, our solutions deliver results in line with the strategic agendas of C-suite leaders.
