Banks and asset managers still have not cracked how to fundamentally manage cost. They will need to learn everything in parallel now: standardize, automate, digitize and rearrange the value chain, if they are to stay in business.
Frank Heideloff, a Managing Director in FIAS in Frankfurt, has 20 years of experience, both as a banker and as a consultant, in developing and implementing market strategies for growing the top-line, as well as improving structures, processes, systems and headcount deployment to reduce cost in order to improve financial results and to increase shareholder value.

His line positions include a management board role at one of the largest conglomerates in the Middle East, where he was responsible for creating several new businesses and entering international markets across divisions. He also served as the Head of Corporate Development and Equity Assets for one of the German Landesbanks, leading capital raises, preparing the bank for a planned IPO and drafting their EU restructuring plan after the start of the global financial crisis.

At A&M he has focused on banks, asset managers and private equity transactions involving financial services targets. He has worked on a broad range of topics, for example:

  • Ran outside-in cost reduction assessment of a global TOP 25 asset manager for a private equity investor
  • Led the operational DD on the acquisition of a Germany-based player active in asset management and asset management services for third parties
  • Provided capital allocation and regulatory advice to the C-suite of a large German bank
  • Developed the digital strategy and co-leads implementation for "digitization" for a leading bank in Asia

Before A&M, Mr. Heideloff was a senior partner with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants working with banks and asset managers across Europe and the Middle East on e.g., post-merger integrations and restructuring programs. Earlier in his career, he worked at Bain & Company in Europe and Asia across different industries.

Mr. Heideloff earned a master’s degree in management with a focus on organization, strategy and finance from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland and a master's degree in international management from the Community of European Management Schools (CEMS). He earned a PhD in business from the Technical University Chemnitz focused on innovation management. A German national, he is fluent in German and English and possesses a good working knowledge of French.
