The shared services model offers a life boat that allows institutions to deliver the same services and even improve quality along the way,” adds Brad DeMent, partner and finance and accounting practice lead at ScottMadden.

These characteristics offer strengths and weaknesses when evaluating new and improved approaches for delivering the plethora of services required.
