Case Study Examples Prompt

Your client is a Large Scottish Retail Bank, which has been operating in a stable market for several years, with low competition. The bank has been experiencing declining profitability over the past few years.

Your client has a very similar product set to their competition. The market regulation prevents mergers and takeovers. The client does not have much money for investment in new developments/initiatives. Funding for future development is limited.

Your client is understandably very interested in reversing this decline in profitability. How could they go about doing this?

Case Overview
