About VBC

Our Philosophy

We provide risk management and consulting services to banks, credit unions and fintech companies. Since our inception we have helped institutions improve their overall financial management process and balance sheet performance while effectively managing risk and meeting regulatory compliance.

An Industry Leader

The VBC services combine industry-leading best practice and extensive experience to deliver the most comprehensive and robust solutions and reports in the industry. We customize effective risk management solutions using a detailed approach to attain optimum balance sheet performance while managing risk and maintaining regulatory compliance.

A Process Customized to Organization Needs

VBC does not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, solution or deliverable. We customize each engagement to meet the needs of the institution, and allow for future modifications when needed. Our reports are specifically designed with the end user in mind, supported with transparent methodologies and vetted annually by regulatory agencies.
