About Us

“We understand the issues of our clients from every perspective. The federal, regulatory, and financial services industry backgrounds of our professionals allow us to provide our clients with both the solution and the advantage. We help our clients think through problems, resolve issues, and identify opportunities.”


Mark W. Olson, Chairman, Treliant Risk Advisors LLC.
Mr. Olson’s former positions include Federal Reserve Board Governor, Chairman of the PCAOB,
Chairman of American Bankers Association, bank president and CEO.

On any given day, a company might have to strengthen its governance structure, develop or test policies and procedures, address a compliance problem, respond to supervisory or regulatory inquiries, assess its credit or market risk, or implement a regulatory or legal undertaking or order. Our team is prepared to assist with the immediate and long range planning needed to manage these operational, compliance, and credit risks. Equally important, our professionals are adept at finding solutions to minimize the damage to reputation that often occurs when serious problems or challenges emerge.

In other contexts, a company may wish to strengthen its position, raise capital, or grow. Moreover, as regulatory structures evolve and economic events unfold in the United States and abroad, companies will need to adjust their own operations and strategies. We have the background, experience, and knowledge needed to help clients understand and respond successfully to specific business issues, industry events, and the ever-changing economic and regulatory landscape.

Treliant CEO Andrew L. Sandler recently described our steadfast, client-first philosophy in an open letter to the Firm’s professional team:

   

 Our principal focus is on meeting the needs of our clients as they strive to address the challenges of the current regulatory environment . . .

 We best assist our clients in addressing these challenges by helping them to craft strategies and practices to diminish regulatory and operational risk. We do this by helping our clients to understand those risks thoroughly and develop compliance risk mitigation strategies that are consistent with business needs.

 Our success depends on our continuing discipline in taking on only those assignments that we are comfortable we can staff with high quality, discreet professionals. Our approach to this is simple: put together the highest quality team, give them the resources they need, and hold them accountable. (More)
