Compliance and AML management often find themselves with special projects and one-time needs without the staff to address them. These situations can occur as the result of regulatory exams, acquisition, consolidation, programmatic changes, new product lines, gaps in procedures and protocols, risk ratings changes, or new transaction monitoring system implementation.

Doyle Carden Group (DCG) is prepared to respond with the solution to temporary special project staffing at a moment’s notice with the same level of professionals with which we respond to all our AML engagements. Whether the need is for a few resources for a few weeks or a large team for many months, we work with each client to ensure the makeup of the team is precisely suited to the size and scope of each project.

At the core of DCG’s service offerings are the most experienced teams of professionals anywhere drawn from government, industry, and private practice and comprised of former law enforcement agents, regulators, forensic accountants, and industry experts. These individuals have conducted scores of remediation and proactive engagements on behalf of financial institutions. They have conducted analysis and investigation of thousands of financial transactions, interviewed hundreds of witnesses, and provided written documentation of their findings to scores of satisfied clients. We pride ourselves on the fact that our professional resources are the “best of breed.” We at Doyle Carden Group do not believe that a client should ever pay for a consultant’s on-the-job training.
