A New Age for the Financial Services and Capital Markets Industry

Helping Organizations Transform Business with a Comprehensive Risk Management Program

Our specialized Financial Services Risk Management group is comprised of industry specialists with decades of experience serving community banks, insurance companies, mortgage companies, finance companies, and broker-dealers. Our dedicated Financial Services consulting professionals have an average of 20 years of experience serving financial services providers in the areas of accounting advisory, tax, risk management, and information technology services and have served financial institutions up to $30 billion in total assets.

What Is Financial Risk Management?

Risk Management is a structured, consistent, and continuous risk management process applied across an entire organization that allows you to proactively identify, assess, and mitigate risks required to achieve corporate and strategic financial and non-financial risk objectives.

“Our focus is in helping financial services providers to transform their business by preparing, adapting, and recovering from business disruptions, as well as aligning to their organization’s strategy and performance goals.”

Gareth Montague-Smith, Managing Director, Risk Advisory Services

 

What is the Financial Risk Management Process?

Cherry Bekaert’s risk management consulting services help financial services institutions improve decision-making, increase accountability, provide clarity on key organizational risks, and enable risk-based performance measurement with improved controls efficiency.

We utilize an integrated and proprietary Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework and methodology that can be applied and customized for the financial services industry and includes peer benchmarking, regulatory expectations, and leading practices.

Our integrated approach is both proactive and holistic to manage risk and is designed to enhance value by improving risk culture through the identification, assessment, and management of an organization’s risk portfolio in a cost-effective manner.

Technology and Data Enablement

The financial services industry is transforming for a variety of reasons – Regulatory compliance changes, environmental changes, digitally-driven economic climate, changes in the way customers buy and do business. Cherry Bekaert has strategic alliances with several Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) software providers to assist financial services companies with strategy, documentation, vendor selection, and validation and a proprietary roadmap for implementation.

We Offer a Full Array of Risk, Accounting, Financial, and Consulting Services that Give Financial Services Providers the Insight Needed to Compete in a Changing Landscape.
