Velligan-Blaxall Consultants Launches VBC Advisors, A Specialty Professional Advisory Practice Serving Financial Institutions

Posted in Insights, News & Events, VBC Advisors

Velligan-Blaxall Consultants, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of VBC Advisors, our specialized consulting services division offering professional advisory services and resource augmentation in the practice domains of model risk management (MRM), Governance Risk Compliance (GRC), data, and technology. Co-led by Brian Velligan and James Glueck, VBC Advisors delivers proven experience informing MRM framework implementations, GRC assessments, board and management team education, data and technology deployments for traditional banking and non-traditional financial institutions and their partners.

As the customization, complexity, and sophistication of the models, tools, and business processes used by financial institutions increases, so does the need for accomplished and experienced resources to help develop robust risk, governance, compliance, and data frameworks. VBC Advisors specializes in the development of programs to manage model risk, meet GRC requirements, including the evolving realm of ESG and Climate Risk, and implement strong data and technology-enabling frameworks.

VBC is deeply knowledgeable of industry practices, leading governance and risk mitigation strategies, and regulatory requirements and has a proven track record in the MRM, GRC, and data deployment domains. Given persistently competitive market conditions, financial institutions are increasingly focused on optimizing third-party relationships including FinTech partnerships and newly emerging and data-driven technologies. Institutions also continue to develop and implement their own custom-built models, modeling frameworks, and risk management strategies to meet business objectives, prepare for emerging risks, satisfy supervisory expectations and meet expanding investor requirements.

Our practitioners and subject matter experts are deeply seasoned, fully credentialed, and have hands-on experience with all dimensions of banking, service delivery, and financial risk and model risk management practice. If your Institution is facing challenges in the areas of Model Risk Management, Financial Crimes Compliance, GRC, Data Access and Visualization, bespoke model development, Third Party Partnerships, and Climate Risk/ESG Reporting, VBC Advisors can provide specialized consulting solutions and professional services that are best-in-class, current, and highly productive. Contact us today to begin a conversation regarding what our specialized consulting solutions and professional services can offer your Institution.
