About ValueQuest

ValueQuest assists financial institutions on various issues: growth, digital, regulatory, operational effectiveness, change programs… Our « quest for value » has different meanings:
- We create value for our clients
- We bring added value in projects
- We embody strong values

In a sector which has become heavily complex and changing, we know that creating value requires a perfect knowledge of the challenges that financial services companies face and of the solutions they can implement. We have decided to be focused and specialized. Our consultants can therefore speak our clients’ language; they can form relevant views on the industry and on their business challenges.

To provide our clients with a good Top Management advice, we decided to recruit only consultants with a strong consulting background and a solid understanding of financial services business. Thanks to our consultant’s profile and personality, we can address business issues in banking and insurance from the most strategic challenges to the most operational details, and to face our clients’ most complex questions.

We measure success of our projects based on demonstrated results, our ability to reach alignment, to foster team commitment, to generate momentum and change for the company
