The pillars of financing
This industry needs to develop specialised research and development cells in order to deepen their knowledge of their own sector. As a direct corollary, the fields of financial modeling, quantitative research and actuarial science are at the heart of their scientific projects.
In parallel, digitalisation and electronic represent a complex shift for financial institutions constrained by extremely strict security and regulatory policies, but which also make it possible to offer new value-added services which were inaccessible several years ago. The appearance of new technologies allow the genesis of heavy R&D programmes: blockchain is a perfect example, and banking institutions are perfect candidates for experimenting with these state-of-the-art technologies. Similarly, the importance of what is now called Big Data is no longer to be revealed in banking information systems which handle huge amounts of data on a daily basis, thus providing fertile ground for data processing projects. Consequently, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence make it possible to leverage these volumes of data by offering value-added services for customers.
If you work in the banking or insurance ecosystem, your projects can lead to innovation and technological breakthroughs, and we can support and advise you in the financing of your work.
Due to the specific nature of the Banking & Insurance sector, our teams generally work in pairs. Their financial mathematics and IT skills allow you to explore your projects in the respective fields of financial modeling and digitalisation. Thanks to this double expertise, we can support you in the various stages of the financing process of your R&D projects as well as assist you in the recruitment of PhDs whose appetite for large-scale Artificial Intelligence projects which banks can offer (for example) is well established.
