Risk management is everybody’s business

From internal fraud to cyberattacks, organizations are put at risk every day. It’s how you prepare for and respond to those risks that separates successful organizations from the rest. The key is a holistic approach that includes people, process, and technology and takes your entire organization into account. Risk management is everybody’s business — and we offer a comprehensive suite of services to help you manage it.

With more than 30 years of collaborative risk experience, we’ve seen it all. Whether solving financial puzzles, protecting sensitive data, or locking down internal controls, our professionals provide best-in-class, customized recommendations and set you up for success — despite an ever-evolving risk landscape.

Our clients say

I have worked with Plante Moran at Leaders Bank for five years. They provide several services to us, including internal, IT and compliance audits. In the past, another firm did our external audit but we have since moved all our tax and audit business to Plante Moran because they educate our team on how to do things better and they share best practices from the industry. They serve as a true partner to us. “We have open and honest communication throughout the year with our Plante Moran team. They are always responsive to our needs and their banking expertise and experience includes banks of all sizes so they know the types of issues a smaller bank might encounter. I would recommend Plante Moran because they are banking industry experts and they provide open communication to us throughout the year. Simply put…they talk to us.

Holistic services tailored to you

When it comes to risk management, there isn’t just one solution. Risk touches every facet of your organization and can’t be managed from a single point. A collaborative, holistic approach is key — and that’s what sets us apart.

At Plante Moran, we’re structured differently. As a one-firm firm, we don’t have competing office-level profit centers, which provides our team the support and encouragement to build the best team possible for each engagement. What does this mean for you? It means we tailor our services, resources, and experts to fit your needs — your industry, your organizational structure, and your challenges.

According to Doug Farmer, Plante Moran’s risk management practice leader, our approach is key for successful risk management. “We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to each client. Our experts apply their specialized knowledge and experience across many disciplines to ensure every risk point is covered.”
