Financial Services


Schneider Downs’ Financial Services industry group provides financial institutions of all sizes with the expertise to effectively address their needs in risk management, IT security and internal audit.

Financial institutions operate in a heavily regulated environment that is experiencing unprecedented regulatory change and technological obstacles. As one of the largest consulting practices in the region, Schneider Downs is well-equipped to help institutions navigate these changes.

Our team is an industry leader in strategic risk management, technology risk and organizational improvement that can supplement existing internal audit, risk, consulting and IT teams or act as a full-service solution provider for our financial industry clients.

We offer both functional and industry expertise in critical areas of technology risk and leading frameworks, and all team members have significant roles in supporting our financial services clients. Many have worked within the industry prior to joining the firm.

This collective experience results in uniquely diverse and deep expertise delivered on each engagement from several subject-matter experts in the internal audit, risk, compliance, data analytics, digital transformation and cybersecurity space. We strive not only to ensure the objectives of our clients are met, but also to identify efficiency and best practice opportunities in all engagements.
