That Can’t Find Institutions

RiskScout’s commercial BSA platform helps financial institutions streamline the compliance burden of banking “higher-risk” markets by automating onboarding and ongoing compliance activities.

Where others see risk, we see opportunity

Unrealized Opportunities

There’s a momentum occurring in the high-risk, specialty banking sector that has created an opportunity for community focused financial institutions. Heavy compliance burdens have left many working entrepreneurs without the financial services they need to run and grow their business. We help institutions approve high-risk legal businesses who can’t find a financial institution.  

Scalable Market Growth

By adopting a forward-looking approach to high-risk customer account management, financial institutions can remove the obstacles that prevent them from exploring higher-risk markets. RiskScout’s world-class compliance banking program allows institutions to boost growth in high-risk markets while minimizing the time, cost, and risk required to manage, audit, and monitor compliance.  

Compliance Staffing Extension

With scarcity of BSA professionals in the financial services sector, and many institutions running under a small seasoned staff, it’s no surprise that instititutions struggle to manage the complexities of regulatory compliance. Each regulation results in a multitude of actions that need to be taken. Frequency tracking, documentation due diligence, and inherent actions can become overwhelming. RiskScout expands your existing compliance staff through streamlined workflows, centralized due diligence, and ongoing monitoring. 

Operational Efficiencies

Audit management is key to a successful compliance program. RiskScout simplifies workflows and empowers institutions to streamline their inspections, observations, and the corrective action follow-up often required with higher-risk businesses.  It allows your compliance staff to access detailed insights and make clear actionable decisions quickly and efficiently.
