The Sheshunoff Difference

-

SC+S continues to lead the way in delivering reliable, flexible and highly professional internal audit and risk management consulting services at a reasonable cost. Our Risk Management Division was the first New England internal audit outsourcer with the resources and chief audit executive level expertise to effectively service large community and regional banking institutions with up to $6B in assets.

 

We pioneered the integrated audit service delivery model to ensure a consistent approach and centralized reporting of all audit results, including technology and compliance. While subject matter experts provide support and guidance for the technical aspects of our Compliance, BSA, Trust and Technology audits, we are still the only firm that assigns a senior level internal audit professional whose sole responsibility is to manage and coordinate a full-service relationship and ensure your satisfaction with our delivery each and every day.

 

SC+S team of Risk Management experts are all senior professionals with real-world experience and a high level of expertise. We have the proven infrastructure and low staff turnover to deliver consistently reliable internal audit and compliance services to 80-100 financial institutions of all sizes every year. We also routinely scale our offerings to meet the needs of smaller banks and credit unions with a friendly, innovative, and collaborative hands-on approach that delivers tangible results.
