Rethinking banking...

In France, universal banking has long been the ‘dominant’ model.

Global disintermediation and technological innovations (Data, AI, blockchain, VR, etc.) are now forcing banks to make major changes to their strategy.

They have to embrace more innovative and hybrid models, such as a multi-platform offering (financial and non-financial) backed by a high-level technological base.

Mews Partners helps banks develop their operational strategy and then successfully execute their transformation plans.

Inventing new Insurance models for new purposes

The upheavals in the Insurance market are prompting players in the sector to rethink their strategy (new community or peer-to-peer affinity business models: ‘pay as you drive vs. pay how you drive’, etc.) and to accelerate their development thanks to digital and technological levers (Big Data, AI, IoT, blockchain, RPA, etc.).

These levers also contribute to optimizing risk control, strengthening the analysis of customer behavior and operational efficiency.

Mews Partners helps Insurance players to understand the dynamics of their changes and to successfully complete their digital and technological transformations.
