Nexeo Finance, an entity of the group with a rich history, has been working with banking and financial institutions since 2005 on their market activities (trading rooms of corporate and investment banks) and asset management activities (fund management and private management).
Spanning the entire chain from the front office to the back office, our consultants also work on issues linked to risk measurement and control in the introduction of new regulations.
They cultivate a dual technical and functional skill set and are able to interact with users on an interpersonal level on high-stakes projects and in an international context:
• Technical and functional architecture consulting and rollout
• Implementation of business software solutions
• Design and implementation of business solutions
Agile methods and practices are at the very core of how we operate. We implement them as soon as possible, notably in all of our packages. Scrum, Kanban, TDD, BDD and software craftsmanship are among the most shared knowledge sets. This encompasses both our technical consultants with a passion for new technologies and our functional consultants, who guarantee an understanding of the challenges surrounding asset management and market activities across all asset classes.
