Investment Banking and Brokerage

The environment for financial services firms is constantly evolving. Current and proposed changes to the regulatory framework and higher costs of capital have forced our clients to evaluate their business models. At the same time, our client’s shareholders are demanding that firms produce higher profits with fewer employees and associated costs.

What VirtusaPolaris Offers

To compete successfully in this environment, financial services firms need to have the ability to rapidly evolve their products and services. This requires a unique end-to-end approach, a combination of business and IT consulting that is scalable and adaptive to various customer needs and channels, allowing them to deliver the right services to the right customer at the right time. These challenges demand an integrated approach to managing opportunities and business risks.

VirtusaPolaris is helping transform today’s financial services firms into tomorrow’s market leaders.
