  • Compliance Risk Assessment: We help you identify and measure the compliance risks associated with your products, services, and processes, and provide recommendations to mitigate them.
  • Compliance Monitoring: We perform regular reviews of your compliance controls and activities to ensure they are effective and aligned with your risk profile. We also provide feedback and guidance to help you address any gaps or issues.
  • Corporate Governance: We help you establish and maintain a strong governance framework that supports your compliance objectives and culture. We review and advise on your board oversight, management review, strategic planning, capital planning, compensation design, and business systems and processes.
  • Board Oversight Review: We help banks evaluate the effectiveness of their board oversight and governance processes and provide recommendations for improvement. We review the board’s role, structure, composition, skills, diversity, culture, and engagement, as well as the board’s oversight of risk appetite, strategy, policies, controls, reporting, and assurance. We also help banks benchmark their board practices against industry best practices and regulatory expectations.
  • Management Review: We help banks assess the capabilities and performance of their senior management team and provide feedback and coaching for enhancement. We review the management’s alignment with the board’s vision and strategy, the management’s leadership style, communication, decision-making, delegation, accountability, and risk culture. We also help banks identify and develop talent pipelines and succession plans for key management positions.
