The results of the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu "2005 Global Offshoring Study" are in, and they indicate that many financial services companies are not committed enough to offshoring, and therefore do not receive the maximum return ratio that could have been gained from the operation.

The most effective offshorers among financial institutions have 6.7% of their global head count offshore, which is much more than the study average of 3.5%. With this in mind, it is safe to say that if all of the surveyed companies that offshore were to reach this ratio, they could triple cost savings just from offshore operations.
