Bank of America must grow with our customer-focused strategy
Bank of America has a simple goal. They need to do more with our customers by bringing them everything they need to live their financial lives.
One of the ways we drive our customer-focused strategy is through their business integration work. Bank of America takes a local market-driven approach. They service customers and clients in the United States through integrated businesses organized across more than 90 markets.
At the local market level, their teams are working together to look at every customer and client relationship in their market and ask: are they doing all they can for them?
Bank of America must grows within their Risk Framework
As a financial services company, risk is inherent in all of our business activities. Managing risk well is fundamental to our business, and they strive to be the very best at managing all types of risk, and to do so in a responsible manner that serves their clients, shareholders, and communities, and helps the economy grow.
Whether investing in a small business, making a credit decision, or preventing fraud, our work calls for sound judgment and a commitment to doing what’s right for our customers, shareholders, and communities. Their culture emphasizes that they are one team, and they have a shared responsibility to manage risk well, act responsibly, and escalate issues so they can be addressed proactively.
They must grow in a sustainable manner
Building a sustainable company is about how, at the core of everything they do, they are guided by their principles to make the right decisions that will hold them in good stead today and in the future. They think about this in a variety of ways.
First, it’s important to maintain focus on operational excellence, and on the momentum they have built managing expenses. They maintain discipline in managing their operating expenses, even while making investments to improve efficiency and grow.
Sustainability also includes having the right governance. They have a diverse and experienced Board of Directors that provides independent oversight. They monitor corporate governance best practices to adapt and improve when necessary.
This rigorous oversight extends across their businesses. For example, each line of business makes decisions through a governance process made up of business leaders and control partners who debate the issues—ensuring we are striking the right balance between risk, business opportunity, and customer focus. And, our Global Environmental, Social and Governance Committee (ESG Committee), led by Anne Finucane, Vice Chairman at Bank of America, with senior leaders from each business line, meets regularly to ensure we are looking at our progress through an environmental, social and governance lens. This committee is accountable to the CEO and reports at least annually to our Board’s Corporate Governance Committee. Learn more about our governance processes.
Their approach to sustainability also comes through in our commitment to ensure their policies, practices, products, and programs all align to their purpose. They have done this in part by creating simple, safe, transparent, and easy-to-use financial solutions that give people greater control of their finances. Explore how we’re giving clients and consumers greater control of their finances through our responsible products and services.
Another way we think about sustainability is the work we do to strengthen our local economies and invest in our communities. Find out how sustainable practices are helping us make an impact.
Finally, to be a sustainable company, we must be a company that values our people and gives all employees the support they need to build their careers, achieve their goals, and have the resources they need to improve their lives and the lives of their families. Learn how we’re valuing our people.
We have a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the diversity of the customers, clients, and communities we serve around the world through operations. We provide resources and strategies to help employees develop no matter where they are in their careers. Through our recruitment programs and partnerships, we are investing in the future by bringing the best and brightest to work at Bank of America.
As we think about all the ways we pursue sustainability, our focus is to use our size and scale in ways that contribute positively to our communities, create opportunity for our customers and employees, and grow our company responsibly.
