Regulatory Compliance

Stay in line with BKD's detail-focused regulatory compliance team.

Staying current with regulatory changes can be daunting and time-consuming. Demonstrating compliance and having confidence in your internal operations is crucial to your institution's success. Whether you're looking to outsource compliance work or staff training or need assistance with select projects, it's important to work with advisors who understand your industry.

BKD's regulatory compliance consultants can complement your internal compliance staff on an outsourcing basis or periodically update and educate your staff on new developments. Below is a closer look at our regulatory compliance solutions.

Compliance Reviews

BKD can conduct an independent review of your financial institution's compliance with federal lending, deposit and Bank Secrecy Act laws and regulations. Our reviews can complement your internal compliance monitoring system and identify weaknesses or areas that need additional attention. Our compliance review program may be annual or ongoing.

Compliance Outsourcing

If your financial institution doesn't have an in-house compliance program, parts of the program can be outsourced to BKD. Under such an arrangement, our consultants schedule periodic visits to perform transaction testing and training. We also help develop appropriate compliance policies.

Compliance Consulting

BKD can provide a customized compliance consulting program, complete with the tools, training and guidance to develop employees into effective and knowledgeable compliance officers.

Compliance Training

BKD offers compliance training on a range of regulatory topics. Training can be structured by topic (covering one topic with all employees) or by function (covering various topics with one group of employees). Training programs also can be tailored to your institution through the use of your forms and disclosures.
