A brief description of d-fine

d-fine is a consulting firm with a partnership structure. The main focus of our activities lies on risk and financial consulting for banks, insurers, industrial companies and asset managers. d-fine has now established itself as a leading player within Europe in these areas. With over 600 highly trained specialists, d-fine covers the entire spectrum from strategic and process consulting through to IT integration.

History

d-fine was formed in 2002 as a management buy-out from Arthur Andersen Germany. With a hundred-strong team of consultants, the buy-out created a large specialist provider of consulting services in the area of risk management.

Initially, the firm's main focus was on conventional risk issues such as the valuation of derivative portfolios, the development of Basel II-compliant rating methods and the introduction of trading, treasury and risk management systems. This range was later extended to include financial control and business strategy issues.  

Over this period, the number of consultants grew from 100 at the start to over 300 in 2011. Equally, the firm's client base grew from just a handful of clients in Germany to well over a hundred in more than ten countries, from global commercial banks, industrial companies, international insurance companies, stock exchanges and financial market intermediaries through to specialist financing providers, small private banks and hedge funds.

To ensure that we were able to meet the requirements of our client base as effectively as possible, we moved our head office to Frankfurt and opened further offices in London (2004), Munich (2006), Hong Kong (2007), Zurich (2010) and Vienna (2012).
