Harnessing opportunities through expertise

The Indian Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI) sector is a bustling space driven by innovation, evolving customer expectations and robust regulatory frameworks.

It has become a significant pillar of the Indian economy and the sector is burgeoning with opportunities for all stakeholders.

The country’s outlook towards financial services has changed over the years and this is evident now, more than ever before, with the surge in the adoption of superior technology to offer customised solutions and an enriched customer experience.

Brisk technological advancements and changing competitive landscape across lending, payments, wealth management and insurance have made it imperative for the BFSI players to break-away from traditional ways of working. Such innovations have also transformed the customer journey and thereby the customer expectations from a financial service provider. Speed, agility and reliability have become fundamental across the customer value chain.

To be upbeat and stay in-sync with the changing market demands, we at Grant Thornton Bharat aim to explore opportunities and channelise them to benefit our clients. Strong industry knowledge, coupled with innovative approach makes us a distinct organisation.
