If it isn’t clear by now, Jamie Sumner is a very well respected consultant in the financial industry. His intuition has helped him earn respect from each organization that he works with. Sally Wolgin, LakeHouse CEO, recently had the pleasure of demonstrating Peer Comparison’s full power to Jamie. Ater having a chance to familiarize himself with Peer Comparison, he had this to say about our software.
“Board Members and Senior Bank managers should always be able to easily access their bank's metrics and know how they stack up to their competitors and the industry at large. That way, when a more detailed analysis of the Bank’s results is presented, those Board Members and Senior Managers are bettered prepared to understand their results and can form better questions. In my experience, there is no software that gives this essential overview better than LakeHouse Analytics' Peer Comparison.”-Jamie Sumner
Utilizing Peer Comparison, Jamie is able to convey the overview of how a bank is doing and what they can do to improve. It helps drastically when Board Members and Senior Bank managers and those institutions also have a view on how they are doing so they can be aware of their position and ask the questions that matter to their overall strategy.
