Back-office Cost Management

Like any business, the long-term profitability of capital markets organisations depends on keeping operating costs down and revenues up.

Managing the profitability of global financial institutions - with their vast and complicated trading interests - is a huge challenge. Standard management accounting tools just aren't up to dealing with the intricate web of cross-charges and cost allocations between desks.

But there's a better way. At SAS, we've developed an integrated performance management infrastructure that's ideally suited to large financial institutions. It gives you tight control over complex and inter-woven costs along with genuine insight that will help you refine and streamline your performance.
