Independent Third Party Reviews

Interest Rate Risk (IRR)

A requirement of the “S”, or “Sensitivity”, component of the CAMELS rating system is for all financial institutions to have independent, third-party reviews of IRR processes and assumptions. Forvis Mazars can provide professional analyses designed to help financial institutions improve their IRR processes. As an outsourced provider of IRR reporting and consulting services, our staff is well-versed in what examiners expect and we can prepare a report based on those regulatory expectations and industry best practices.

We are noted for developing solutions for verifying ALM models that meet the highest level of industry standards. Our model assessments comply with specific OCC 2000-2016 mandates, the IRR Advisory issued by the FFIEC in January 2010, and other crucial requirements.

Our clients report confidence from working with a team of professionals who are experienced in ALM modeling and financial management. Forvis Mazars provides ALM consulting and reporting to financial institutions from around the country on a monthly and quarterly basis. Our experience has provided us with insights into what is required in managing IRR for both business planning and regulatory assessments and this knowledge is valued by our clients.
