Financial Services - Bank Board Training
Today’s demanding regulatory environment requires directors of financial institutions to be educated and well-versed in the extensive regulations governing their institution. In addition, to avoid negative scrutiny from a broad range of stakeholders, each director must take a proactive, engaged approach to performing their board duties. The FTI Consulting team of experienced former bank regulators and senior bank managers share their current knowledge of today’s regulatory environment – offering practical and effective solutions and advising the Board concerning current and potential issues that the institution faces or may be faced with before those issues escalate into crisis situations.
Who We Are
FTI Consulting, as a leading independent consulting firm free of conflicts, is often the preferred provider of critical services to global financial institutions. Our Bank Governance and Regulation practice team includes former senior managers at bank regulatory agencies and financial institutions who have the expertise and experience to add value while addressing client concerns. Our financial professionals are experienced bankers, CPAs, attorneys, economists, forensic specialists, governance and internal control experts and other professionals with expertise in regulatory compliance, enterprise risk management, financial and operational risk, information technology and strategic communications. Our team also includes former staff members of the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of Comptroller of the Currency, FDIC, SEC, Department of Justice and states Attorneys General.
Meeting the Challenges
As the experience and expertise of regulators increases, more emphasis is being placed on stricter adherence to guidelines and the broader integration of risks in order to ensure capital adequacy, liquidity, fair lending and compliance with myriad other regulatory requirements. These requirements, combined with those related to guiding the strategies and business performance of the organization, place heavy responsibility on board members. To help Boards meet this challenge, we provide education and training programs customized to the specific needs of the organization and the location and time constraints of the Board. Our training can be customized but typically covers the important regulatory and bank operations topics highlighted below.
