FMA Overview

Financial Markets Advisory (FMA) provides a differentiated range of advisory services by leveraging the firm’s capital markets, data and risk analytics, technology, and financial modeling capabilities.

FMA advises financial institutions, regulators and government entities on their most critical and often most complex financial issues. We work with senior management at top financial institutions, official institutions and market intermediaries and utilities around the globe, with a focus on their balance sheet and capital markets exposures as well as a wide range of other strategic, regulatory and operational challenges.

Our technology and analytical infrastructure help us provide a unique value proposition for our clients. We leverage our Aladdin® platform in addition to the firm’s sophisticated capital markets, risk analytics, data management and financial modeling capabilities to deliver results-oriented consulting and advisory skills.

FMA was established in 2008 to address the unique challenges that arose globally as a consequence of the financial crisis. Since inception, we have completed over 650 assignments for more than 250 unique clients in over 35 countries.

Our professionals are spread across geographies and time zones to serve clients in all locations and respond to urgent needs as they arise. For assignments demanding cross-disciplinary expertise, we unite professionals from multiple offices to deliver the most effective team for any client situation.

FMA operates behind an informational barrier, separating it from the firm’s traditional portfolio management activities. This creates a conflict-avoidant environment and further serves to protect client data and proprietary information.

  • Financial markets expertise across all asset classes with deep practitioner’s insight and leading research capabilities
  • Unrivaled analytics and data management capabilities leveraging state-of-the-art technology, modeling expertise and a global risk analytics platform
