Franz is home to strong individualities federated by strong convictions and beliefs.
Current trends are more than ever shaking the established order. The new paradigm is paradox, inspiring companies to be ever more creative and challenging in their strategic choices. A new era is opening, it is digital and it demands new environmental, economic and social answers.
We believe in a future that will shake the usual players, business models and value chains. We believe that this future will be European.
We designed Franz to be an alternative consulting boutique for companies aiming for sustainable strategies on European markets.
Franz is designed to combine market-wide intelligence and expertise with case manager skills creating offerings driven by long-term vision and short- term imperatives for sustainable business impact.
We work with large-caps headquartered in Europe. Our primary focus is on financial services and insurance with offerings targeting headquarters and corporate functions, retail banking, consumer finance, leasing and factoring, insurance and financial markets.
We understand strategy as the artefact of a structured, policy driven and data-enlightened dialog between stakeholders. We dedicate time to get a sound understanding of our client’s issues and context, trough open-minded and extensive dialog.
Each assignment is analysed from different perspectives and with a creative mindset in order to consider every possible direction before trying to address it.
This allows our clients to get a first understanding of Franz perception and to adjust the assignment plan to the best fitting way and capability.
