Case Study for Longreach Group Ltd

Taiwan’s banking sector is notoriously problematic, with some 70 banks for just 22 million people, around half of them state-connected, poorly differentiated and frequently loss-making, yet resistant to consolidation. Banking investment has its own issues, with some skepticism over whether private equity owners can ever effect operational improvement.

To Longreach’s credit, what is ostensibly the first ever private equity-controlled banking transaction in Taiwan is also looking to be one of the most successful. EnTie is in many ways a typical Taiwanese bank. Founded in June 1992 and listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange in 1999, EnTie is a mid-tier player, just below the local top twenty by assets. The bank is concentrated in the Greater Taipei region, with 34 of its 53 branches there, with a business well-balanced between commercial and retail banking. Learn further about Longreach Group Ltd

Case Study for Raiffeisen Bank Aval

Raiffeisen Bank Aval is one of the leading banks in Ukraine. It provides a wide range of standard and innovative banking services through its nationwide network. Established in 1992 as Joint Stock Postal Pension Bank Aval, in 2005 it became part of Raiffeisen Bank International. The bank’s network is comprised of 934 branches located in large cities, provincial and community centers and villages throughout Ukraine.

The history and development of Raiffeisen Bank Aval’s data warehouse spans 12 years. In 1998, the bank’s IT team was asked to consolidate information from disparate operating systems in order to enable consolidated financial reporting. In those days, solving such problems did not require specialized software. Instead the first data warehouse at the bank was based on a traditional database, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). This data warehouse was later enhanced, and is still an integral part of the bank’s overall information management system. It is currently used to generate daily analytics reports for the National Bank of Ukraine and consolidated tax accounting.

Case Study on Kingdom Bank Limited (United Kingdom)

We compare the investment activities and sources of finance of venture capital (VC) funds in Germany, Israel, Japan and the UnitedKingdom. VC investments differ across countries in terms of their stage, sector and geographical focus. Sources of VC funds also differ across countries; for example, banks are particularly important in Germany and Japan, corporations in Israel, and pension funds in the UnitedKingdom. Although the differences in investments are related to funding sources—for example, bank and pension fund-backed VCs invest in later stage activities than individual and corporate backed funds—a large proportion of variation within as well as between countries is unrelated to sources of finance.

Case Studies on A Teller Management System: Bridgewater Bank

Bridgewater Savings Bank: Similar to most banks, the nine location Massachusetts based Bridgewater Savings Bank (BSB) had an enormous amount of transaction data in their core system that went unused. Without a methodology to turn this data into useable business intelligence, it just took up server space. With the help of FMSI’s Teller Management System™ (TMS), BSB was able to employ a new methodology for utilizing their valuable transaction data and improved their teller productivity by 23%—resulting in a $0.23 drop in labor cost per transaction.
