Portfolio Lead Advisory Services


Portfolio Lead Advisory Services

Strategic advice on portfolio optimisation, deleveraging and loan portfolio transactions

Portfolio lead advisory services (PLAS) help financial institutions to optimise their lending portfolios through the review of loan portfolios and the divestment of non-core or low return portfolios.

Challenges facing financial institutions

In the face of emerging regulatory and accounting changes affecting the financial services sector, banks face an uncertain future. The key challenges ahead include implementing AASB 9 and Basel IV; on-going regulatory changes by APRA including lending limits and capital hurdles; and the outcomes of the Royal Commission.

Now is the time for Australian financial institutions to review their lending portfolios to redefine their core business and products and understand legacy products or asset classes and the returns achieved.

Portfolio sales are an opportunity for banks to deleverage their balance sheet, improve returns on equity, and simplify their operations.
