Risk Consulting

Whether building a core set of processes to meet the goals of a defined risk based initiative or performing due diligence for M&A or regulatory purposes, one thing is for certain: All enterprises are built around opportunity and unless you have the tools and knowledge to address Risk in this context, chances are that your opportunity will be negatively impacted. Our role is to be the agent of change and implementer of processes that will enhance your opportunity.

To do this, we engage with our customers either on a single assignment or ongoing retainer basis so that we can define and identify, build and implement any of the core components needed to preserve your opportunity. This is done with objectivity and a practical experience based approach that aligns your needs and your resources to the outcomes you are seeking.

Risk Management Continuum

Define and Identify:
• Objectives and desired outcomes
• Risk Identification, tolerance and interdependencies
• Alignment of manageable processes to corporate hierarchy
• Identify Information needs and management reporting structure

Build:
• Risk and Control self assessments, and distribution methodologies
• Controls matrix aligned to internal objectives and external regulatory requirements (Sarbanes Oxley, BSA 2009, FINRA, SEC etc)
• Risk Register and Interdependencies between Risk, Controls and self assessment frameworks • Communication, information flow and gathering processes
• Notification and escalation processes

Implement
• Process timeline and Project management
• Process monitoring and improvement
• Management reporting
• Internal and external advocacy (Regulators, Insurers)

Aggregate Reports, Monitoring, and Benchmarking

Our services are Industry agnostic – Risk is prevalent in everything a business does and in every way that it operates. The diversity of our expertise is such that we are attuned to all the common (and often uncommon!) aspects of risk that manifest themselves in the interactions of a business between its customers, stakeholders, regulators, suppliers, and partners. To manage these relationships to successful outcomes requires foresight, knowledge and a clear and objective view of risk and risk management. That is our strength.
