Financial & capital market reform

DevPar has been carrying out projects in this specialization for over ten years. Our professional staff include experienced bankers, securities and insurance personnel from developed countries. Their backgrounds are in policy development, regulation and basic institutional functions covering both front and back office activities. Often they include specialists in areas such as depository systems, or accountants knowledgeable in International Accounting Standards, or bankers with expertise in credit granting, risk management, payments systems, evaluation and recovery. They can be human resource management experts with experience in change management, classification systems and knowledge management. We offer a wide range of technical expertise with international experience that can work effectively to achieve reform across the spectrum of financial and capital markets.

In addition to the support provided to the larger traditional financial institution in the formal sector, DevPar has considerable experience in micro finance, rural credit, credit unions and other financial co-operatives. Our work in these sectors has included policy, regulatory, deposit insurance, recovery and strengthening projects. Training and new product development carried out in a marketing context has been extensive. In several situations, our teams have led turnarounds of institutions operating with less than satisfactory results.

A review of the assignments performed will demonstrate how we have contributed to the conduct of feasibility studies for the introduction of new markets and products, the strengthening of market supervision and regulation, the establishment of new institutions, extensive training of market participants and the restructuring of existing institutions.

The Canadian International Development Agency awarded DevPar a Standing Offer Contract to provide specialist advice to the Agency on matters relating to Development Finance, which includes financial institutions, capital markets and related regulations (Agreement Number 2000477)
