The bank aims to bring in a mechanism to improve customer retention especially among the elite HNI segments, increase new customer acquisition and increase cross selling/ up selling to existing customers. The selected consultant would assist / guide the bank to work broadly on suggesting clear differentiators between marketing and sales teams; redesign approach and define customer segmentation; conduct detailed customer segmentation and tiering for existing customer base; and redefine the segment and strategy / value proposition for key customer segments.
