Credit Risk Management and Lending Operations

Assess, transform, and optimize your end-to-end credit risk management lifecycle for maximum returns

We help organizations assess, design, and implement efficient and effective credit risk management and lending operations by leveraging our experience as former lenders, regulators, and risk managers.

Our credit risk solutions are delivered to reduce operational costs, improve the efficiency and quality of credit risk decisions, and enhance the client experience. Protiviti has the tools, people, and experience necessary to help your organization create resilient credit risk management and lending operations.

Executives are under ever-increasing pressure to ensure that credit risk management practices provide a frictionless customer experience, maximize efficiency, and demonstrate clear evidence of compliance with institutional credit standards and regulatory expectations. Outdated and insufficient credit risk management practices and lending operations can lead to increased credit losses, suboptimal customer experience and turnaround time, depressed margins and regulatory scrutiny.

Our team helps clients manage all aspects of underwriting, originations, servicing, default prevention, loss mitigation, collections, and resolution.
