Over the last several years regulatory agencies have implemented risk-focused examinations to evaluate compliance with applicable laws and regulations for financial institutions, specialty finance and financial services companies. Today, financial organizations are operating in a complex challenging environment due to global economic pressure, increasing regulatory demands, consumer awareness, terrorism, drug enforcement, capital requirements as well as significant operational and technology changes. At RSM US LLP (Firm), our Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Regulatory Compliance (RC) Consulting team advises clients to proactively identify, manage, and mitigate regulatory risk. 

 

We have an exciting opportunity for a Director level leadership role in our Western region.

At the Firm we help clients protect their reputations by effectively controlling their regulatory risk.  The AML/RC Consulting practice primarily focuses on four industry sectors:  (1) banking services; (2) broker dealer, and advisory clients; (3) forex futures, swaps, and derivatives; and (4) non-banks such as specialty finance companies.

As an AML/RC Consulting leader in the West, you will be responsible for managing our growing Risk Advisory Services practice that specializes in assisting clients in managing operational, financial, and technology risks as well as designing and implementing process improvements that can lead to increased value, revenue, or cost containment.  AML/RC consultants help clients understand and address clients’ enterprise regulatory risk.  The firm’s Risk Advisory Service offerings include:  Regulatory Compliance, Internal Audit Transformation, Information Technology Internal Audit, Security and Privacy, Sarbanes Oxley Advisory, Contract Compliance and Cost Recovery, Governance, Risk and Compliance and Enterprise Risk Management, and Anti-Fraud along with traditional assurance and tax services.

This position will also serve as part of our national network of regional AML/RC leaders under the direction of our national AML/RC leader.

 

Risk and Regulatory Consulting provides end-to-end advisory services to executives and boards that are designed to help create and protect value, and increase effective management of strategic, regulatory, financial, operational, and compliance risks on a sustained basis.  Through this practice we offer clients the solutions of:  design of regulatory compliance programs, regulatory risk management programs, mock regulatory reviews, conducting independent compliance reviews on behalf of regulators and management, supporting internal audit functions in internal audits of compliance, supporting ongoing quality control mechanisms and developing compliance policies, procedures and methodologies along with remediation projects to address internal or regulatory improvement efforts.  The firm uses established and regulatory-based compliance frameworks to deliver sound risk assessment strategy advice.  Our approach, developed through years of experience, is designed to identify, measure and reduce the regulatory compliance vulnerabilities our clients face.
