To directly improve our clients' business results:

revenue, cost, capital, culture, conduct.

Why we exist
What We Do
How We Do It


Together with our clients, we break down complexity and co-create simplicity. The steps from legacy to future-state become transformational



We influence through respectful intelligence, diligent excellence, acquired experience and intrinsic transparency 





EDT Consulting was founded with a passion for transparent, calm and engaged advice to financial institutions and industry participants. Our team of associates have worked with banks, insurance companies, brokers, asset managers and family offices when impactful decisions are required to transform from legacy to future state.

Because we engage respectfully and jargon-free, our services are professional for professionals.

EDT Consulting advises on operating model set-up and simplifications. We help organizations and their staff to become aware of and to embrace simplifications, gain the knowledge and skills to implement change, and to create sustainable behaviours and results.

We cover all front office and support function activities where we have deep personal industry experience, including customer channels, sales, trading/risk, structuring, capital markets, transaction banking, portfolio management, asset management, operations, technology, finance, human resources, risk, compliance, governance, communications and audit.

We are advocates of a simplified and intrinsically transparent execution framework that makes material impacts, quickly. We customize our programs so that they lead to sustainable outcomes and relying on us is not perpetual. 

We are do’ers and make things happen. We build trust by empowering our clients’ staff to ultimately implement and sustain change. 

What we do for our clients, is what we have done many times before ourselves. We therefore ensure that as consultants we are not bringing more complexity of our own.

We provide advice in modular format, starting with engagements deployable in short sprints of a few days. Full value is achieved when a holistic implementation across businesses and functions is undertaken.

"The opposite of the simple is not the complex, but the ambiguous."
