Our clients say

Our team met with Plante Moran experts for a one-day training on CECL; the experience was eye-opening. We now see that we can adopt CECL using an Excel-based tool we can develop ourselves. We’re confident about the path ahead and took a big leap toward adoption based on the clarity provided during this training.

Our Team

We realize that each client is unique. Although our financial services team serves more than 225 community banks and provides risk management services to more than 150 financial institutions, our approach to each engagement is as distinct as the bank we’re serving. As trends, economic factors, and regulations change, we study the data and bring you practical, effective solutions. And although we have a colleague partnering approach, which enables us to draw from the experience of multiple experts, we provide you with one primary contact who coordinates all services and facilitates rapid responses to your inquiries and service needs.
