Challenge: A $200 million Community Bank in Northwest Arkansas needing assistance in complying with both the OCC’s Report of Examination and subsequent C&D.
RWG Actions: RWG began its engagement with a $200 million community Bank in Northwest Arkansas in 2009, assisting the Bank in complying with both the OCC’s Report of Examination and subsequent C&D. The Bank continued to receive a non-compliance regarding the loan review article of the C&D while under engagement with another firm. However, within the first regulatory examination under RWG’s oversight, the Bank was determined to be in compliance and has remained in compliance since. Our assistance grew by assessing the Banks compliance with their ROE by providing the Bank with the tools to implement swift corrective measures.
Result: The Bank has drastically improved its relationship with its Regulator, has measurably improved asset quality and has begun discussions regarding removal of the enforcement action.
