Advisory

Mercurious helps individuals and organizations to professionalize their activities & portfolio. Therefore we train people and deliver advisory services in the field of the markets, portfolio management, the business and related support functions, risk management and back office activities & processes.

Our consultancy assignments are mainly advisory services. We typically do not implement to maintain our independency, although we support change management teams.
