Risk Management Services

DCG is a practitioner of Asset Liability Management (ALM).  This experience defines our unique services.

DCG’s genesis was as an asset liability management (ALM) software developer, yet early on our founders realized that banks and credit unions needed a partner to help navigate the ever-changing ALCO landscape. Today, DCG is the industry leader in TOTAL balance sheet management: interest rate risk modeling & reporting, validation, analyses, education, regulatory support and strategic development.

Those critical factors are at the foundation of every one of the risk management services we offer. For nearly 40 years, DCG has been at the forefront of the evolution of ALM—developing new ideas and new technologies all while remaining a trusted, independent advisor to our clients.

Our primary service is our Balance Sheet Consulting service that is provided on a quarterly basis to our clients all throughout the country, yet access to our team of experts is unencumbered. Our staff is frequently asked to speak, write and meet with regulators, so we remain with our fingers on the pulse of the banking industry.

As the industry has continued to evolve, so has DCG’s products and services. Our Balance Sheet Consulting service is joined with an array of state-of-the-art online tools and analytics including Liquidity360°®, DCG’s liquidity risk modeling and management tool, Deposits360°® our deposit study and customer analytics platform, and Prepayments360°™, DCG’s loan prepayment and analytics tool. In addition, DCG provides capital planning and credit stress testing services, and comprehensive model risk and model validation services.

Regardless of what your ALM needs are, DCG has the right solution for your institution. Our focus in all of our risk management services is helping you get the most out of your process. You cannot do that with a standardized approach to managing the balance sheet. DCG takes the time to understand your needs, your vision and your goals. Our greatest asset is our people—call us to learn more about how we can work together to exceed those goals!
