What we offer our clients

We offer our clients a unique banking perspective.  Our years as regulators have provided us with an in-depth understanding of government policies, procedures, regulations, and the government's perspective on banks.  We take this expertise and pass it on to our clients. 

We perform periodic loan reviews for stable institutions and for institutions that are experiencing credit quality difficulties.  Unicon has helped many banks develop systems that meet the new tougher regulatory requirements.  Many of our clients have been complimented by the regulators for the improvements we helped implement.  Additionally, we are approved to conduct loan reviews, management studies, BSA reviews, and operational reviews.

Unicon has also been hired by many law firms to serve as expert witnesses and consulting experts, including complicated lending transactions and loan fraud.  Our consultants have also been hired to investigate numerous civil and criminal matters and we have worked closely with both the F.B.I. and United States Department of Justice.  In addition, Unicon has been appointed as an expert banking witness in federal court.
