Bank Examination Assistance

Bank Examination Assistance

With today’s rapidly changing regulations and examiner expectations mean that banks need to be adequately prepared for their regulatory bank examination. Without the proper preparation and follow-up, weaknesses will be exposed and the financial and reputational costs of these oversights can be substantial.

Our comprehensive banking examination assistance is tailored to your bank and your bank’s unique needs. We will assist you throughout the entire examination process (pre-exam, during exam, and post exam) or provide support in specific areas. Regardless of the level of assistance your bank requires, our team of experts will provide the supported needed to get through the exam.

CCG Catalyst provides support with each step of the process:

  • Review policies and procedures and, as necessary, augment, revise, and/or add missing elements prior to an exam
  • Evaluate past exams and audits to determine if previous deficiencies have been corrected
  • Assess performance in key areas, including those areas that are current regulatory “hot issues”
  • Provide on-site support at the beginning of the examination, be available to return at any time during the exam if conflict arises, and attend the exit interview
  • Respond to examiner questions / requests and formulate a formal response to the exam
