Day-to-day business operations are the responsibility of the bank officers and their staff, but bank directors are responsible for overall objectives and strategy, including the enforcement of bank policies and practices.
Director’s examinations help directors manage liability by assessing bank conditions and policies. The exam is subject to state law minimum requirements, but can be tailored to specific areas of concern or higher risk. Depending on your needs, a director’s examination may be a more efficient solution than a full financial statement audit.
Internal audit is defined as “an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations.” Internal audit programs are one of the most effective tools to assure that you have a comprehensive risk management program in place. A systematic, disciplined approach to evaluating the efficiency your bank’s risk management, controls, and governance puts you in a better position to accomplish bank objectives. Internal audits verify that your bank has the internal controls in place and are appropriately designed for your organization.

Allowance for Loan and Lease Loses (ALLL) Analysis
ALLL is under more scrutiny than ever. Recent economic conditions have taken a once simple exercise to a much more technical level. Bankers have had to add terms like environmental factors, quantitative values and portfolio segmentation to their vocabularies. If you’re concerned with the ALLL process or want a review of your existing provisions and calculations, MIB Banc Services, LLC can help you identify and quantify the risks in your portfolio. We can help you develop and implement a working model for your ALLL that offers a well-supported and appropriate level of analysis while addressing requirements.
Interest Rate Risk Review
In accordance with regulatory expectations, the complexity of interest rate risk models has grown to support multiple capabilities like earnings and capital levels, business models, risk profiles and operations. Analysis is done on earnings calculations as well as the economic value of capital measurements. Regulators expect management to conduct ongoing monitoring and back testing of the models’ performance using the interest rate risk model results. We conduct an independent review and validation of your IRR exposure. We appraise your interest rate risk model’s assumptions, simulations, and forecast “back-testing” using guidance from the Joint Agency Statement. You gain the confidence in your systems you deserve.
