Partner & Associate Director
Markus Ampenberger joined Boston Consulting Group in 2010. He is a member of BCG's Financial Institutions practice, and a member of the global management team for payments and transaction banking. Since joining BCG, Markus has worked mostly with payment service providers, banks, and fintechs. He has led many engagements in strategy, M&A, and post-merger integration, as well as target operating model (TOM) design and optimization. He has considerable experience in all payments and transaction banking topics, supply chain finance, and digitization in banking.
Before joining BCG, Markus completed his doctoral studies and worked a few years for a German regional bank.
The next few years could be make-or-break for some banks. If they don’t join the digital ecosystem movement, they will be consumed by it.
BCG’s 20th annual study of the global payments industry examines how all participants in the payments ecosystem—including acquirers, issuers, networks, wholesale transaction banks, and fintechs—can raise their game by pursuing new strategies for growth.
Innovation is opening significant opportunities, but emboldened competitors are tightening the time frame for pursuing them.
Despite crisis-related dislocations, payments players can unleash long-term growth by acting decisively now to mitigate near-term risks, gain scale, and deliver superior customer impact.
