Responding to a regulatory enforcement action is the most significant challenge a financial institution can face.
It can also be an opportunity to implement important changes which many times have been a long time coming. If properly managed, objectively resolving enforcement proceedings can result in a stronger, more credible, and more viable institution, with enhanced potential for sustained long-term growth and earnings in a managed risk environment.
Addressing the requirements of the enforcement action, and correcting problems cited in the Report of Examination must be the critical priority for the board and management.
The key lies in managing the process and the the key objective is to get back to the business of banking as soon as possible.
