Outsourcing and co-sourcing a range of compliance solutions
About 90 percent of America’s banks are considered small to mid-sized. These form the true backbone of the nation’s financial sector, as they cater to small-town and rural communities, which the bigger banks largely ignore. Unfortunately, local, and regional banks are under intense pressure to comply with regulations, such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, imposed after risky practices by their larger competitors brought on the financial crisis of 2008. It had become more and more difficult for small to mid-sized financial institutions to comply with all the regulations.

- Sarbanes-Oxley testing & Internal Audit Department Support
- Compliance audits
- Risk assessments
