How we helped

Already managing $1 trillion of assets under management, this private equity firm had ambitions to double the size of their Chinese operations in the coming year. They were conscious, however, of key regulations and geopolitical risks in the area.

Global leadership needed an assessment of the exposure of their Chinese operations to any such risks affecting operations, technology, data, user and customer experience of firm, and to risk mitigate these risks to the best possible extent.

AlixPartners’ Risk and Financial Services experts identified clear user requirements and value drivers to drive choices on applications and data sharing. They also advised on opportunities for process improvement and data rationalization, highlighting upwards of $50 million in potential savings. 

The client was able to evaluate options for its next moves based on risks, costs, and benefits across the three levers: regulatory requirements, operating model, and risk appetite).
