Bring it back to the basics, is the philosophy that serves as a foundation for our company and informs all of our work.  We fully believe that simplicity is better, and that relationships are the key to success.

KBRG is a boutique consultancy focused directly on supporting Community Banks around their compliance efforts.  We truly believe these institutions are pillars in the local economies they support, and our mission is to make it easier for them to continue this support to individuals and small businesses alike.  We back this effort by providing top-notch, compliance-centric data at palatable prices, a proprietary assessment to identify areas where cash can be freed up within compliance processes, and consulting support to deliver on all the results our research drums up.

Simply put, we are in it for the long haul to build relationships and financial strength, just like Community Banks do everyday in their local communities.

The most recent research from the Federal Reserve and the Conference of State Bank Supervisors shows compliance cost increasing to over $5.4 billion in 2017, an 8% YoY growth.

KBRG’s Compliance Cost Benchmark allows Community Banks and Credit Unions, respectively, to compare their compliance costs by major regulations, to their regional and similar sized peers. The goal is to identify gaps of being over- or under-staffed and the associated costs.

Banking regulations are complex and continuously evolving.  Today’s financial institutions must adapt to stay in compliance, but at what cost?

KBRG’s Proprietary Assessment is a 2-fold offering, consisting of a compliance process efficiency review and cost benchmark.  The results are actionable insights into an organization’s current compliance processes    and optimal cost structure.

Typical “consulting” relies on the use of industry experts to support an organization’s transformation, when in truth, internal teams are best positioned to drive the change.  

KBRG's Management Consulting delivers a pragmatic and goal oriented approach to consulting while partnering with internal constituents in the areas of: Strategy, Regulatory Support, Program/Project Management and Financial Analysis to drive change from within.
