Corporate governance review of a major European bank
Confronted with a perfect storm of a national economy in crisis, significant internal upheaval, and wide-ranging regulatory changes, the board of a major European bank turned to FTI to improve its corporate governance mechanisms. Our work included evaluating the effectiveness of the board; running education sessions with senior stakeholders; reviewing the risk management framework; and assessing the three lines of defence model. As a result of the bank’s clear focus on good governance, it emerged safely from the recession without needing bailout support, even winning a national award for its governance arrangements.
Systems and Controls Review of an Insurer
An insurer turned to FTI for advice after weaknesses in its governance and control were identified by management and the regulators. FTI advised on the development of a comprehensive policy framework, reviewing a number of operational policies across all areas of the business and suggesting improvements. We also reviewed proposed changes to the client’s governance arrangements, suggesting a series of enhancements designed to improve risk management and oversight.
Financial crime remediation programme support
We were engaged to assist a bank in a remediation programme covering thousands of clients. As well as performing a review of client files, our team provided recommendations for procedural improvements, designed and delivered technical training on combatting financial crime to approximately 100 employees and held coaching sessions for the bank’s senior management. This helped the client to build a robust financial crime resulting in positive feedback from the regulator.
