Guidehouse works with leadership to build effective compliance solution strategies to see what is around the corner, and to help leaders understand their risks and responsibilities. We don’t simply provide strategic advice, we provide the good counsel and program agility needed to meet current and future regulatory obligations. Most importantly, we work with executive leadership to formulate sound strategies that can be efficiently operationalized to achieve results.
Given the complex and evolving nature of corporate governance, boards often require objective advice and compliance oversight. Guidehouse works with each client to ensure that its risk appetite is clear and communicated, and that risk is mitigated by effective compliance policies. We provide the results of key reviews, independent testing, and risk assessments directly to the board of directors. We give a straightforward and honest assessment and make recommendations for what to do next, so that the board can provide effective oversight. Guidehouse is often a trusted advisor to corporate boards.
Target Operating Model & Anti-Money Laundering
Guidehouse works with clients to achieve operational excellence. We help banks structure compliance departments based on risk, complexity, size, and business lines to enable clients to achieve effective compliance. Guidehouse reviews investigative functions across the organization to identify areas appropriate for shared resources and services and assess staffing levels to identify opportunities for adjustment.
Based on our root cause analysis of the deficiencies, we provide specific recommendations designed to comply with the laws and regulations while meeting regulatory expectations and industry best practices. Guidehouse often starts with the board, providing training so that the board understands its responsibilities and vulnerabilities, is aware of risk, and knows how to communicate expectations and incentives to build a culture of compliance throughout the organization.
Compliance Technology Vendor Selection
AML compliance system selection is a time-consuming process and a major investment for any institution. Whether your institution is replacing or upgrading one of your AML systems, or is considering using artificial intelligence, machine learning, or robotics, Guidehouse can help. We have the knowledge and experience to assist your organization with critical change. Guidehouse analyzes and documents business process and technology needs associated with targeted systems and creates business requirements to be included in a request for information (RFI). We can facilitate vendor evaluation, developing effective selection criteria and scorecards, in addition to managing RFI responses via the vendor assessment submission process.
