Recognised industry expertise. Perfectly networked. With a view to the future.

Banks & building societies

Economic cycles. Automation. Regulation. Individualisation. Rising interest rates.

“My family environment brought me into contact with the banking industry at an early age, and of course this has shaped me. You quite naturally develop a basic understanding of both the professional and the human context of the industry. That may explain why I have such appreciation for all the expertise and networking that ifp has to offer me. It brings clarity to everything that fascinates me about this industry. At first glance, many of our clients operate within homogeneous network organisations. But if you take a closer look, you’ll find yourself looking at an individualised environment with extremely diverse personalities.”

— Sabine Lutzius

The banking sector is on the move: regulations, changing interest rates, digitalisation and process standardisation are just a few of the topics driving the industry.
