Internal Audit Services

Is your Board of Directors confident in your internal audit function?  Have your critical risk areas been independently and objectively audited for financial, operational, compliance and strategic risk?

If like most community banks, you must make do with a limited internal audit budget, it is hard if not impossible to hire sufficient staff with the skills and experience that instill confidence in compliance.  Most banks can ill afford in-house internal audit experts in every function.  Few can afford advanced data analytics for the sophisticated risk analysis and modeling your bank needs in today’s high-risk environment.

Consider Outsourcing

If your bank faces those internal audit challenges, consider outsourcing all or part of your audit reviews.

The benefits of outsourcing:

  • Cost savings from 20% to 40% because you pay only for the work you need.  You can align costs with your areas of highest potential risk and business needs.
  • Ready access to subject matter specialists with broad-based knowledge of risks and issues, and industry best practices.
  • Greater objectivity and independence.
  • Knowledge sharing to help train internal staff.
  • Management freed from audit worries to focus on running the bank.
